Not sure if the "Hint, hint" was intended for me, as I'm not exactly
a git hacker. I did find another place where I reached for it
instinctively (now that I use it regularly with checkout/merge):
git checkout some_branch
git commit -m "..."
git checkout other_branch
# hmm...what's different between these branches?
git diff -
which I would have expected to act something like
git diff some_branch..other_branch
Just for the archives.
(or possibly the reverse)
