I wanted the concrete list(s) because these are options I don't know
about and have never needed.

This is how one of my commits look like
 git commit
or maybe
 git commit -m "Some comment"

Commit without "-m" will pop up the editor in the EDITOR enviroment
variable and ask for a comment, with a template.

I don't know anything about the other 37 options and I have never looked
at the commit man page.  The above examples are all I know about commit
and all I expect to know.

(Also, the -m option was the same in CVS and SVN (and nearly the same in RCS))

(of course I rarely use even commit from the command line since I mostly
commit from the staging area of magit...)
