vc-git-previous-revision and cmd.exe

vc-git-previous-revision appends "^" to a revision to get the previous
one.  But "^" is a special character for the Windows cmd.exe shell, so
'D' in the *vc-change-log* buffer doesn't work if the 'git' command is
actually a batch file that invokes the real Git executable, in which
case we call cmd.exe to run the batch file, and cmd.exe removes the ^
(because it's the escape character).

Can we use "~1" instead?  If that's bad for Unix, we can do that only
on Windows.
