Exactly that, yes.  I often use `reset HEAD` in my own workflows in the
name of speed, and I can't see any disadvantages of doing it here, too.

It isn't necessary, in that the process works if you skip that command.
However, without it, the `git bisect replay` command prints "We are not
bisecting" before it does anything else, so having the `bisect start`
there explicitly removes that extraneous output.

If the script were integrated into git-bisect itself, it would probably
make sense to change that behaviour so the warning isn't printed.  (It
quite possibly makes sense to remove the warning when running `bisect
replay` regardless.)  But when writing the stand-alone script I wanted
things to work without any changes to the core Git code.
