Thanks for the info! I will definitely consider this in the next version,
and include a test to verify the interaction.

This seems natural to me: I'm adding a new worktree and expect the
settings to match my current worktree. If we later want to extend
`git worktree add` to include an `--empty-cone` option (that creates
the worktree as if it was created by `git clone --sparse-cone`) we
could do that independently.

Thanks for pointing out that my word choice could be improved. I'll

I think we can leave the file-by-file addition for later, but may need
to make certain design decisions in this initial version to avoid issues
with adding that feature in the future. (Perhaps the recursive-folder input
should have "/" at the end, to clearly state these are folders, not files.)

I'm hesitant to include a second "source of truth," as that can cause
issues when users modify the sparse-checkout file directly. Since the
existing way to interact with the sparse-checkout is to directly edit
the file, I want to be as careful as possible around users who modify
that themselves. The caveat is that if they specify "cone" mode then
they will get warnings and worse performance if they modify it outside
the limited patterns we allow.

Thanks for this interesting use case! I think an empty file should be
updated with the root files, since Git does not think that is a valid
state. The current series must only check for existence, not content.

Thanks! I'll be taking a close look at your patch-by-patch feedback
this week and hope to have a non-RFC v2 soon.
