This is a v2 of [1] to address comments on the mailing list. Primarily the
change is to remove the option for --base=if-able, since it is not as useful
as the configuration option. If we think it is desirable, adding back a
whenable or whenAble option is easy enough.

Here's the range diff since the v1.

1:  3c7f89213158 !  1:  cb24cf3fe8b5 format-patch: teach format.useAutoBase "whenAble" option
    @@ Commit message
         Teach format.useAutoBase a new mode, "whenAble". This mode will cause
         format-patch to attempt to include a base commit when it can. However,
         if no valid base commit can be found, then format-patch will continue
    -    formatting the patch without a base commit. --base also learns the same
    -    mode using the term "if-able".
    +    formatting the patch without a base commit.
    +
    +    In order to avoid making yet another branch name unusable with --base,
    +    do not teach --base=whenAble or --base=whenable.
    +
    +    Instead, refactor the base_commit option to use a callback, and rely on
    +    the global configuration variable auto_base.
    +
    +    This does mean that a user cannot request this optional base commit
    +    generation from the command line. However, this is likely not too
    +    valuable. If the user requests base information manually, they will be
    +    immediately informed of the failure to acquire a suitable base commit.
    +    This allows the user to make an informed choice about whether to
    +    continue the format.
     
         Add tests to cover the new mode of operation for --base.
