Yes!  Implementing the 'summary' internally as merely an alias to a
canned user format does sound like the right approach.

Further, instead of inventing %as, I think you could just use %ad
there, and when 'summary' uses that canned user format, flip the
default date format to short.

That way, "git show -s --pretty=summary --date=iso" would be
available to those who like the format.

Thanks.
