Yes, I would like to be sure that I haven't missed some magic syntax
for rev-list before going further in my poor man solution :)

Basically I have an initial set (or can be several different sets)
expressed as a revision specification described by git-rev-list man
page. I just want to find the common set of commit which are part of
the initial sets *and* is reachable by master.

I would write it:

     git rev-list "$@" --and master
