Please have a look at templates/map-cmdline.default

Currently the patch is simply appended to this, but I can imagine
that it will be piped through the templater, too. Then you can
simply use a custom template for hg log, the notify extension or
even hgweb to show diffstats.

No new command line switch and even more flexible!
