Since you ask so nicely for an explanation: clonebundles got a really
lively and active discussion at the Contributors' Summit. So it is not
your run of the mill typo fix, the bundle issue is something that clearly
receives a lot of interest in particular from developers who are
unfamiliar with the idiosynchracies of the code Git development.

And I got the very distinct impression that Git would benefit a lot from
these developers, *in particular* since they come with fresh perspectives.

Now, we can make it hard for them (e.g. expecting them to sift through a
few months' worth of What's Cooking mails, to find out whether there has
been any related work, and what is the branch name, if any, and where to
find that branch), and we can alternatively make it easy for them to help
us make Git better.

I would like us to choose the easier route for them. Because it would
benefit us.
