I think the new name is likely to confuse normal users - when talking
about a branch, you can talk about where it forked from and in that case
it normally means the merge-base of that branch and master.

The --reflog name has the advantage that it makes clear that this is
looking at something more than the commit graph and I don't think
--fork-point does imply that.
