            Bug ID: 5740
           Summary: No obvious way to disable graph output added from
           Product: Mercurial

          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: feature
          Priority: wish

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1415922 is an interesting bug

At the crux of it, some automated code attempts to run `hg log -T '{node}'` to
resolve a node value. However, the user's hgrc has an [alias] for "log = log
-G". So the `hg log` output contains a leading graph node before the node.

The behavior is the same if HGPLAIN is used.

A workaround is to use `--config alias.log=log`. But that feels hacky.

It feels like there should be a more scripting-friendly way to ensure aliases
don't come into play when running commands.
