Feel free to send patches adding these options.

I had the impression that git-log was a pseudo-plumbing,
despite it being explicitly marked porcelain
as there is no good plumbing alternative.
But as we already have things like log.date, log.decorate,
that change the output of git-log, I think a patch or graph
option would be ok.
