The plan is to use the commit-graph's generation numbers for these A..B
queries, but due to some cases when commit date is a _better_ heuristic
than generation numbers, we have not enabled them for A..B. You'll see
that 'git rev-list --topo-order -n 1 HEAD` will be much faster with the
commit-graph, but adding '--topo-order' to your 'HEAD~1..HEAD' query
should not change the time at all.

See [1] for the discussion about "generation number v2" which will allow
us to use a better heuristic in these cases.

Thanks,
