I think this is likely to cause problems.  Many people use git log with
--pretty to format commit hashes or messages into other programs.  I'm
aware of multiple tools that will simply break if --graph or --patch
become the default.  Requiring people to retrofit their tools to use
--no-graph or --no-patch is likely to be a burden.
