There are broadly two problems with the current SYNOPSIS. First, it completely omits the detail that paths can be specified. Second, it attempts to list all the options: this is futile as, in addition to the options unique to it, it accepts all the options that git-rev-list accepts. In fixing these problems, make the SYNOPSIS consistent with that in git-log.txt. Also add the corresponding sections to OPTIONS. Save adding the options from rev-list-options.txt for a later patch, as it requires some work to pick out the options that are relevant to shortlog.
