It looks reasonable, although it's a bit weird that log alone would
sprout the ability to produce a diffstat, but not more obvious commands
such as diff or export.

The email extension uses -d for the short diffstat option.  For
consistency, log should use the same letter, or quite likely not have a
short option at all.

Also, I notice that if one uses both -p and -s, the diffstat gets
printed after the patch.  That seems wrong.
