I share this concern a little.  Not all initial commits involved hundreds or
thousands of files.  If I'm just starting a new project there's probably only a
small handful of files, and I'd probably prefer to see them in the commit

I don't have a strong feeling either way, but I'm inclined slightly more towards
“use -q if you want quiet output”, rather than special-casing initial commit.
