I know that I personally use 'mtn log --from <rev> --last 1 --no-graph
--diffs' *all* the time; a simple command which does this ('mtn
summarize' or the like) would be a boon, particularly if it could take
multiple revisions and output them in order.

Of course, there is really no reason this can't be handled as a shell
alias or simple script, either...


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
