This series grew directly out of suggestions proposed in [1]. Its
purpose is twofold. First, it brings git-worktree in line with the other
"checkout a branch" commands git-switch and git-checkout by teaching it
-d as shorthand for --detach (which those other commands already
understand). Second, it enhances git-worktree documentation to emphasize
that `git worktree add <path>` creates a new branch by default, and to
discuss branch-based vs. throwaway worktrees, which may help newcomers
avoid creating unwanted new branches without realizing they are doing,
and later wondering why `git branch --list` shows branches they did not
intentionally create.

There was an earlier attempt[2] by Pratyush to add -d as shorthand for
--detach (though it did not enhance git-worktree documentation as the
current patch series does), however, that patch was never re-rolled
after reviewers pushed back on a few of the changes it made.
