Having said all that, I do not mean to advocate to retain "-q". Most
likely nobody uses it, and "-q" is grossly misnamed ("why is it so
special to be "quiet" only for removals?"). As long as we mention its
removal in the release notes (and possibly tell those miniscule
minority that wants to ignore deleted files to use --diff-filter
instead), we should be OK.

Independently, we might want to enhance --diff-filter parser to make
it easier to say "I want everything but D", perhaps use lowercase
letter to subtract from what have been specified so far (or if there
is no uppercase letter, start from "everything"), so that we can say
or something.
