Oh, we can collaborate on one beautiful series :)

Can't we construct that using [%(upstream:short): %(upstream:diff)]?
It's nothing fundamental.

We can stick to using the existing %(...) atoms: there's no need to go
as far as %an versus %aN.  The atoms cannot be consistent with
pretty-formats anyway, because pretty-formats has completely different
atoms.  For the _new_ stuff like color and alignment, we can be
consistent with pretty-formats, no?

It's just a matter of modifying the parsing/printing layer, instead of
introducing new atoms in the current parser.  Doesn't $gmane/224692
demonstrate that the former can, in fact, be easier?

Auto-color can come later: it's not that urgent.  What's more
important is that we give users the flexibility to set their own
colors now.

Can you give me a pull URL to your series, so we can start
collaborating?  Mine's at gh:artagnon/git (branch: hot-branch).
