'--pickaxe-patch' is shorter than '--pickaxe-raw-diff', hence more
convenient to me. It looks like 'pickaxe-all' and 'pickaxe-regex' are
the only --pickaxe-* options currently implemented. Both of them are
two-worded only and easy to remember/type. I think '--pickaxe-patch'
is more user-friendly, but I leave git people to say the final word.
