What's wrong with git on the right-hand side of a pipe?

On the left-hand side we lose its exit code, which is bad. But on the
right hand side, we are only losing the exit code of "cat", which we
don't care about.

(Though I agree that "cat" is pointless here; we could just be
redirecting from a file).
