Ah, of course, this is about the code that propagates the "source"
(i.e. from which tip given on the command line did we start the
traversal to reach this commit?), so that is what ensures there is
something in commit->util and revision_sources not just has an entry
for the commit but the entry should have a non-NULL string.

So shouldn't *slab_peek() here be *slab_at() instead?
