    When you define "it" that way, not as any simple
    file pattern match, but as a control for what
    "git log -- path"
    to inspect, it's quite feasible to use the pattern
    match rather than the file name.

    So, thanks, that's a good suggestion.

    Multiple warning labels on tools tend to get ignored.
    People that use tools without training tend to get injured.

    cheers, Joe
