Am I right that the -4- is the distance, ie. the number of commits? What is the 
g123467 then? The hash? And if so, can it be left out on the command line, too? 
Because if it has to be part of the arguments, you could just use the hash 
instead, too, right?

In any case, thanks for putting so much effort into this :-)
