Hmm, yeah, I think you are right. We only care about whether there is an
entry, so I didn't think "widen" would matter. But one form of widening
is to have no pathspec at all. :)

Makes sense...

I was thinking this would have to go deeper in the revision code, but
"-L" is strictly a git-log thing. So this looks like the right place to
add the check.

This test confuses me. What are we looking for here? Presumably we'd
fail with:

  git log -L1,1:a.c

too. If the test were "basic command line parsing", I could see checking
that. But that's only what the comment says. :) I don't see how adding
in the pathspec is interesting, nor that it matches the test title.

Right, this is what we fixed. Would using test_i18ngrep on the stderr be
better than the comment?

These are really tests of --follow, but I don't mind seeing them here as
reinforcement for the concepts that the commit message claims.

Should one of those be "-L is incompatible with --follow"? Though of
course we did not add such a check, so we know that it will be "-L is
incompatible with pathspec", even without the --follow.
