there are development workflows where a feature or fix is
by definition implemented in the dev branch and perhaps picked
into a stable/rc branch.
A question often being asked in such a workflow is "Is this fix in this
stable branch?". Usually I would call "git branch -r --contains $commit"
to figure this out, but this command does not work in such workflows
because it's a different commit since it was picked.
git-log knows the --cherry-pick option to identify commits with identical
Wouldn't it be nice to say "git branch --cherry-pick --contains $commit"
to see branches containing a commit even if the commit was picked?!
