On this.  It might be profitable to auto-follow at a low threshold
(and change --follow to a number  argument like -M, -C).  I'm not
asking you to do it for more than one-file at a time, but I often view
one file's history: I was just going through the history of
builtin/merge-trees.c (what I was looking for was mostly in the
builtin-* variant), and it would've been nice if I didn't have to quit
and come back with a --follow.
