It looks to me like the previous code and documentation don't match. The
CPAN docs, the git docs and the git code all appear to agree that there
is a single scalar result. But the CPAN code implements an array result.

feature. But there was a specific change in the code behaviour. As Chris
says, it seems like some discussion of the correct resolution would be
sensible.

Cheers, Dave
