Its difficult to explain because it breaks away from the precedent set
by other SCMs.  I wouldn't call it a show-stopper for this reason.  In
fact, some who have wrapped their heads around the concept might call it
a valuable feature.  I, myself, have found it a handy thing in certain
circumstances.  In other circumstances I simply bypass it by adding -a
to the command-line.

This doesn't fit my definition of a show-stopper.
