This probably makes sense.  The author of switch and restore isn't
involved in the git project anymore.  He decided to work on other
things, which was and is a big loss for us.  I think others (myself
included) didn't know all the things that might have been in Duy's
head that he wanted to verify were working well before marking this as
good, but these two commands have generally been very well received
and it has been a few years.  Personally, I'm not aware of anything
that we'd need or want to change with these commands.

That said, we're only a few weeks from -rc0, and I'd rather remove the
experimental label early in a release cycle, so maybe this would be a
good thing to do after the June git-2.32 release.  That'd give plenty
of time for others to chime in with anything they might be aware of
that they want or need fixed.

Thanks for flagging this.

Elijah
