Short option for "--show-diff" in "commit": like "-vv" or "-p"

Bug Description

Binary package hint: bzr

"bzr commit --show-diff" is handy, but too long and you can easily forget about this.

"-p" for patch would be good IMHO (and git uses this for "log" at least).

"-vv" would mean "more verbose", and include more verbose information, like the diff/patch for changes.

Sounds like a good idea to me. "bzr log" also has --show-diff with -p for short.
