recursive, done right[1].  For now, I'm calling it "Ostensibly
Recursive's Twin", or "ort" for short.  At first, people shouldn't be
able to notice any difference between it and the current recursive
strategy, other than the fact that I think I can make it a bit faster
(especially for big repos).  But it should allow me to fix some
(admittedly corner case) bugs that are harder to handle in the current
design, and I think that a merge that doesn't touch $GIT_WORK_TREE or
$GIT_INDEX_FILE will allow for some fun new features.  That's the hope
anyway.
