merge-base: "--is-ancestor A B"
In many scripted Porcelain commands, we find this idiom: if test "$(git rev-parse --verify A)" = "$(git merge-base A B)" then ... A is an ancestor of B ... fi But you do not have to compute exact merge-base only to see if A is an ancestor of B. Give them a more direct way to use the underlying machinery.
