I am thinking that we could have 2 modes for the log: 
- a short one that would be used by default for directory logs
- the current long one that would be used for file logs
(I haven't completely thought this through)...

Looks better indeed. As long as the version that it prints can be used
to show the corresponding diff, we should be good.
