Yes, please preserve this behaviour.

I pulled today the diff-tree -c semantic change and now I see, in git archive:

$ git-diff-tree -r ca182053c7710a286d72102f4576cf32e0dafcfb

Please _do not_ change this behaviour to make -m a no-op as stated in
"diff-tree -c raw output" patch message

qgit has the possibility to switch from "see all merge files" to "see
interesting only", so
we really need that difference between 'git-diff-tree -r' and
'git-diff-tree -r -m'

Anyhow I am very happy with this change because it broke qgit ;-) but when fixed
it will have a lot of code removed and will be faster too.
