I don't understand this....

The underlying log command outputs all revisions by default, so if it
didn't output all of them, that must have explicitly been requested by
emacs, so emacs should know about it.

[Also, is it supposed to be operating incrementally?  At least with git,
it just pauses for a while and then outputs the entire log at once.]


Logic, n. The art of thinking and reasoning in strict accordance with the
limitations and incapacities of the human misunderstanding.
