Add "No Merges" checkbox in Log Messages window

It would be extremely useful to have "No Merges" checkbox in Log Messages window. My reasoning for this enhancement is as follows:
I often use "git log featureXXX --first-parent --no-merges" to view only "real work" commits in branch featureXXX, excluding technical merges from the stable branch to update the codebase of branch featureXXX.
After featureXXX is completed and merged back into the stable branch, git branch featureXXX is deleted. If we have some other long running features in parallel with featureXXX, the network of the stable branch becomes too complex to figure out at glance which work was really done
In case "git rebase" is not used on long-running public branches, having "No merges" is definitely a must to manage a large project with TortoiseGit.
