No, I meant a single configuration that causes it to be used everywhere,
like the "log_format" option.  I realise my phrasing was ambiguous, and
I could have meant "I want each command to provide the option of using
status --short format".

Doesn't follow what I meant.

Diff doesn't show merged revisions at all.  I think you mean log.  Short
log format doesn't show merged revisions, but it *also* is a shorter
output format:

v$ bzr log -r 3876.1.2 --long
revno: 3876.1.2

  Add a test case that checks the 100MB limit.

$ bzr log -r 3876.1.2 --short
3876.1.2 John Arbash Meinel	2008-12-01
      Add a test case that checks the 100MB limit.
