Nothing I've tried along the lines of "HEAD:{yesterday}" has misparsed
the part after the colon as anything but a filename.

The one I can think of where there's a parse ambiguity is that while
:foo gets file foo, :1:foo does not get file "1:foo". Instead it's
treated as a stage number. Using either HEAD:1:foo or :./1:foo
will avoid that ambiguity.
