The same "revision range" comment, and also that this should be
after all options and before "-- <pathspec>", apply to this.

While it is true that this page is missing many options, including
rev-list-options.txt as-is is more harmful than helpful and the
patch needs more work (hint: with "ifdef::git-shortlog[]" sprinkled
in rev-list-options.txt).

Some of the earlier one in rev-list-options are fine, but some
others are inappropriate in the context of shortlog.  For example,
--grep=<pattern>, while it would internally work as it is told to
do, is unlikely to be clear how well/correctly worked when viewing
the end result.  So are many others, such as --all-match,
--walk-reflogs, --sparse, etc.  Some e.g. --topo-order, do not make
sense at all.

I am not sure what the command would do if you give --stdin; the
command wants to read from the standard input to operate as a filter
for "git log" output, but the "--stdin" from rev-list family wants
to read revision range specifiers from the standard input.  I do not
think it is something any sane user would want to do.
