Sorry, I focused on the --diff-filter aspect of your question. As for
--follow, I think that is less "by design" and more "what happens to
occur, because --follow is a bit of a hack".

So there may be a bug, or room for improvement in the code there, though
if the solution involves turning on diffs for all merges, that may be
prohibitively expensive.
