The shortlog takes most (all?) options that git-log
does, e.g. in git.git:

    $ git shortlog -sne --author=Peter

    74  Peter Krefting <peter@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
    43  H. Peter Anvin <hpa@xxxxxxxxx>
    23  Peter Eriksen <s022018@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
     7  Peter Hagervall <hager@xxxxxxxxx>
     6  Peter Collingbourne <peter@xxxxxxxxx>
     4  Peter Baumann <waste.manager@xxxxxx>
     3  Peter Oberndorfer <kumbayo84@xxxxxxxx>
     3  Peter Valdemar Mørch <peter@xxxxxxxxx>
     2  Peter Colberg <peter@xxxxxxxxxxx>
     2  Peter Eisentraut <peter@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
     2  Peter Harris <git@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
     2  Peter van der Does <peter@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
     1  Peter Hutterer <peter.hutterer@xxxxxxxxx>
     1  Peter Law <PeterJCLaw@xxxxxxxxx>
     1  Peter Stuge <peter@xxxxxxxx>

Maybe we'd to state in the man page explicitly that
shortlog is part of the log family hence taking all
log related options.
