Would you be OK with this hybrid format that we discussed a few
days ago:

[<repo sans git>/<branch>*] <common root path>: <commit subject>

* branch only shown if != master.

If we could agree on a hybrid, IMHO that'd be a better solution
than having different formats in play. It's technically possible
to make it configurable, but people who subscribe to multiple
repositories with different formats might get irked by it, it
might make writing filter rules for some more complex, etc.
