Oh, indeed.  I only looked through my mailbox, not the ML archives,
and I wasn't on Cc for the last two patches of the series.  Thanks for
pointing it out.

I think we do need that additional fix as well, because we now break
at least one tool built around Git.

Though looking at patch 4/4, I'm not so keen about restructuring the
extract_id_from_env() helper function into id_from_env_matches(),
because I'd prefer to have a helper function for ID extraction and
nothing else, and to have all the uid matching inside one function.
