It does accept a <revision>, so any form is allowed; but why would
anyone want that in a format.defaultTo? I'm not sure we want to impose
an artificial restriction on the configuration variable though.

I'm not sure @{u} is a good default. Personally, my workflow involves
publishing my fork before sending out patches; mainly so that I can
compare with @{u} when I do re-spins. People can put @{u} in
format.defaultTo if it suits their workflow though.
