FWIW, I think the discussion above the scissors adds a lot to the
context. It might be nice to add it to the commit message.

I am slightly puzzled why parse_revision_opt does not just call
handle_revision_pseudo_opt. According to f6aca0dc4, it is because
pseudo-options need to be acted on in-order, as they affect things like
subsequent "--not" options, etc. But if we are using parse_options_step,
shouldn't we be handling the options in order?

I am sure I am just missing something obvious, so do not trouble
yourself if you do not know the answer offhand.
