From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de>

Currently, when called with exactly two arguments, `git range-diff`
tests for a literal `..` in each of the two. Likewise, the argument
provided via `--range-diff` to `git format-patch` is checked in the same
manner.

However, `<commit>^!` is a perfectly valid commit range, equivalent to
`<commit>^..<commit>` according to the `SPECIFYING RANGES` section of
gitrevisions[7].

In preparation for allowing more sophisticated ways to specify commit
ranges, let's refactor the check into its own function.
