I think he's suggesting that in the case e.g. of commit, the first
argument always be the revision and the following always be the files.

Then the '--' is a no-op in the current syntax, because it's just
separating two otherwise normal arguments.

Unfortunately, I use files a lot more than I use revisions (as would
most people using 'commit', I think), so this ends up being pretty
darn awkward.
