Actually, I think the same remark would apply to any other Git command
that deal with a set of revisions. If you want to review code with "git
log -p", but you don't care about a subdirectory, you may want a "git
log -p --ignore-dir foo/" or so, too.

And then, the "it's logarithmic" argument doesn't work anymore ;-).
