I know that we have the ability to use options in automate now, and
this is totally an aesthetic judgement, but get_file_of the _only_
command of its type that uses -r to specify revisions seems weird and
inconsistent.  Maybe it would be better to make it consistent with the
other commands for now, and then as a separate step, if there is
consensus that we really want to do things that way, switch over all
the automate commands to use -r at once?
