Basically, yes. New clients connect for git-upload-pack2. Over git://
the remote peer will just close the TCP socket with no messages. The
client can fallback to git-upload-pack and try again. Over SSH a
similar thing will happen in the sense there is no data output from
the remote side, so the client can try again. This has the downside of
authentication twice over SSH, which may prompt for a password twice.
But the user can get out of this by setting remote.NAME.uploadpack =
git-upload-pack and thus force the Git client to use the current
protocol if they have a new client and must continue to work over SSH
with an old server, and don't use an ssh-agent.

Over HTTP we can request ?service=git-upload-pack2 and retry just like
git:// would, or be a bit smarter and say
?service=git-upload-pack&v=2, and determine the protocol support of
the remote peer based on the response we get. If we see an immediate
advertisement its still the "v1" protocol, if we get back the "yes I
speak v2" response like git:// would see, we can continue the
conversation from there.
