I'm hoping to see summarized diff stats (number of files changed and total insertions/deletions) inline in the magit log view.

Currently if the diffstats option is enabled the log is rendered with each commit spanning multiple lines like:

* 17ec06b dotemacs move media bindings
| 
|  .emacs.d/ebpa.org | 18 +++++++++---------
|  1 file changed, 9 insertions(+), 9 deletions(-)
|  

I'm curious if it is currently possible to see/add summarized diff stats inline with the commit message. Perhaps as an additional column like this:

* 17ec06b dotemacs move media bindings                         (1 file, +9, -9)

The compactness would help in visually scanning the log to identify commits which should be rebased.

Judging from the discussion on Magit log dates I'm guessing this is not easily done yet.

I'm afraid that's correct.
