OK, then. Here it is as a real patch.

Heh, nope, I wrote it by hand.

I actually wondered if there was a better way to write this. One of the
things that bugs me about the patch is that this policy check is so far
from actual line-log code, which means the two may drift apart over
time. We could put a LINE_LOG_SUPPORTED_FORMATS into line-log.h, but
that's also pretty far from the actual code. We could just make the
output logic in the line-log code something like:

  if (NO_OUTPUT)
	...do no output...
  else if (PATCH || DEFAULT)
        ...show normal patch...
  else
	die("unsupported output format");

but it's probably a little friendlier to diagnose the problem up front,
not after we did a bunch of computation.  And most of these other
"incompatible" checks in setup_revisions() suffer from the same
maintainability problem. So instead, I went with the code above (with
spaces!) and protected it with some tests.

Subject: [PATCH] line-log: detect unsupported formats

If you use "log -L" with an output format like "--raw" or "--stat",
we'll silently ignore the format and just output the normal patch.
Let's detect and complain about this, which at least tells the user
what's going on.

The tests here aren't exhaustive over the set of all formats, but it
should at least let us know if somebody breaks the format-checking.
