Be careful about allocating single letter options. The suggestion in
issue981 (Command/option to display+meaningful patch from merge)
already proposes -s for showing useful diffs for merges.

Additionally I think 'summary' isn't the correct term here. The
patchutils command with the same feature is named 'combinediff', so
maybe use that?
