It will require (by eliminating the need for the --source or --base 
options) about half as much typing (for the user) as using rebase would.

It also halves the number of potential options the user has to worry about.

PS On the subject or options, it's not clear from the documentation what 
output --style and --template control.  One usually only expects these 
options on 'log' like commands.
