Which shows the new head and the commit that the destination needs. That 
is fine. But:

git>git-rev-parse master --since=10.days.ago

is not helpful: it does not tell what is expected to be on the other 
end. And I find both forms absolutely useful in the ways I use 
git-bundle. The latter one does not tell me what is needed. The only way 
I solved that was to walk all the commits from git-rev-list, one at a 
time, to find the parents, and keep the results not otherwise in the 
list. I found that so terribly slow in bash I gave up on it as 
unworkable: I have found in practice my current solution of git-fsck to 
be much faster.
