If you use aliases, something like this is easy:

    git config --global --add alias.lp 'log --patch --cc'

I use aliases heavily, so that's my fix for now.

But I think the current behaviour is unexpected for most (new?)
users (including me). I thought -p would display all changes in
all commits, including merges.

I guess changing -p's default behaviour to imply --cc is
problematic, so I think we should document that -p doesn't
generate patches for merges. Maybe something like this:
