i traced the cmd_log() to understand the point at which pretty.c could
be used, i only got to userformat_find_requirements().

struct userformat_want {
    unsigned notes:1;
    unsigned source:1;

what are notes and source flags used for ?

olga: what approach did you follow to figure which logic in cat-file
was redundant and that ref-filter could be reused there ?
does it include picking any file, go through it entirely and then pick
places to be replaced by ref-filter logic ?
