I'm *guessing* that this apparent exception to the stated rules could
be because Q is the start of the walk. Or maybe I'm just missing a
key detail. I'd love to hear confirmation either way.
[Questions 2 and 3 snipped]
4. --dense (the default behaviour) includes walked commits iff they are not
TREESAME to any parent. --sparse includes all walked commits. But
how do I get the middle ground, i.e. all walked commits which are
not TREESAME to at least one parent?
This seems like an obvious use case, but I haven't figured out how to
do it yet :-/
Thanks! (I probably don't say that often enough, but the sentiment is
always there ;-)
