List all files in a git commit

In the afternoon I needed to list all files in a single git commit. I used the following porcelain command (meant to be user-facing):

git show --pretty="" \
    --name-only eeddcc94

What also works is the following plumbing command (meant to be programmatic):

git diff-tree --no-commit-id \
    --name-only -r eeddcc94
