I tend to use --left-right.  All I meant is that with both diff and
log, ... is a way to get something meaningful when my history and
someone else's history have diverged.

I agree that it would be easier to explain if there were some

        git diff --from-merge-base A B

We could say that "git diff A...B" is a mostly meaningless shorthand
for that.
