Another thing I am not enthusiasitc about this change is that I am
afraid that this may make "git blame -- path" and "git log -- path"
work inconsistenly.  The both cull side branches whenever one of the
parents gave the resulting blob, even that parent is not the first
one.  But "git blame --prefer-first -- path", afaict, behaves quite
differently from "git log --first-parent -- path", even though they
share similar option names, adding more to the confusion.
