I think preserving the existing behaviour here is exactly the wrong thing to
do. When I initially read Ian's email where merged revisions were not shown
by default I was so happy.
We need to think of the new users, and those who are looking to adopt a DVCS.
When people go `$vcs log` we want to be comparable. Those doing these tests
don't often even look at the results, the only compare times. Having the no-
merge option as the default I think is the right thing to do.
Those existing users who care can very easily add an alias. Those new people
won't know any different except it is faster now.
