I do this copy&paste too though I think in this case we could improve
something to not copy&paste in the first place.

A..B from fetch is the same as branch@{1}..branch. If we have some
shortcut similar to ^! but for reflog, that would be perfect (the
branch part does not require much typing with tab completion).
