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!
