Sorry for the late reply - I had some personal events, but I should be
able to look more at Git stuff from now on.

It is unfortunate, although as far as I can tell, the performance
improvements from "git fetch" (which I think is the more frequent
command called) remain, so it might not be so bad. I see from your
What's Cooking that these patches are to be merged to master, which I
agree with.
