I mean automatically getting the minimum depth which gives us the
history back to the last (annotated) tag. So that "git describe" and
possibly other project specific administrative scripts (like
git-version-gen or gitlog-to-changelog) would work safely on that
Or maybe --depth could just generally accept a revspec as argument
instead of number only. This would be more useful anyway IMO. Then
perhaps something like "last_tag" could be a general magic revspec,
probably useful for many other git commands too.
