... and what about 'git log HEAD^!'?  Is that a range?  What about
'git log HEAD:README' (hint: it doesn't error out)? I would argue that
"A B" is not inherently a revision range, but rather two revisions.
It's upto different commands to interpret it differently.

Then again, in the context of log, we just want ranges (also
considering we had <since>..<until> for this long, and I didn't even
object to it).  So I'll go with your "revision range", but I won't
claim that it's technically accurate.
