It's worse: if the commit is not in the current branch it won't be
listed at all, and `C-x v L` doesn't let you show the log corresponding
to another branch.

If `C-x v l` accepted a C-u to specify the "revision" for which to show
the log, then it would solve both problems: you could get the log
of other branches and you could see the commit message and the diff of
a specific REVision with:

    C-u C-x v l <REV> RET
    followed by hitting `D` on the first element to see the diff
