turns out to be bad to `bisect_bad`, and the number of commits
we are bisecting right now to `bisect_all`.
+This outputs all the commit objects between the included and excluded
+commits, ordered by their distance to the included and excluded
+commits. The farthest from them is displayed first. (This is the only
+one displayed by `--bisect`.)
+This is useful because it makes it easy to choose a good commit to
+test when you want to avoid to test some of them for some reason (they
+may not compile for example).
+This option can be used along with `--bisect-vars`, in this case,
+after all the sorted commit objects, there will be the same text as if
+`--bisect-vars` had been used alone.
