It is bigger in scope, but the fix is still pretty small. I was trying
to trick^W gently prod you into making a patch, but that does not seem
to have worked. :) So here is a series that fixes it, and we don't have
to worry about a stopgap.

  [1/4]: t1411: add more selector index/date tests
  [2/4]: log: respect date_mode_explicit --format:%gd
  [3/4]: reflog-walk: clean up "flag" field of commit_reflog struct
  [4/4]: reflog-walk: always make HEAD@{0} show indexed selectors

The first two fix and test the bug I mentioned, and as a result solve
the stash problem. The second two fix and test the bug that Junio
mentioned. This doesn't affect stash, but it's the right thing for "git
log" to do.

I don't have a problem at all with %gi; I think it would be a good
addition. I just think that stash shouldn't use, as the "--date" thing
is a feature that there is no reason to deny to stash users (it just
needs to be less buggy :) ).
