I cannot offhand say if I like this change or not.  A flag bit is a
scarce and limited resource; commit slabs felt more suited for
implementation of corner case eye-candies.

I definitely do not like the way a commit-list data structure is
abused to hold a phoney element that points at a NULL with its item
pointer.  Allocate a single bit in revs that says "I haven't done
anything yet" if you want to catch the "first-ness" without breaking
what commit_list_insert() and friends are expecting to see---they
never expect to see a NULL asked to be on the list, AFAIK.

I do not see the point, either.  I vaguely recall that the previous
iteration refused the combination at the option parser level, which
I think would be the right thing to do.

That is fine.
