Add 'git-rev-parse' helper script
It's an incredibly cheesy helper that changes human-readable revision arguments into the git-rev-list argument format. You can use it to do something like this: git-rev-list --pretty $(git-rev-parse --default HEAD "$@") which is what git-log-script will become. Here git-rev-parse will then allow you to use arguments like "v2.6.12-rc5.." or similar human-readable ranges. It's really quite stupid: "a..b" will be converted into "a" and "^b" if "a" and "b" are valid object pointers. And the "--default" case will be used if nothing but flags have been seen, so that you can default to a certain argument if there are no other ranges.
