Thanks, that makes it much more clear to me at least what you were
asking in the original.

Not that my opinion necessarily matters, but what I was trying to
express elsewhere in the thread was a preference for: output is blank,
and tie it to "-b" (mostly because I do not see any way in which the
author name sans commit is at all useful).

I _would_ consider changing the default to "-b", but that is really a
separate topic from this (and quite possibly falls under the "if I were
designing from scratch today, but I am not..." category of changes).
