It's like arguing "this series is a bugfix, so what it fixes are by
definition bugs", isn't it?

Well then it becomes debatable if it is a "bug" not to handle
missing .git/info that needs "fixing" by this series, and it also
makes it debatable if 7f44842a (sparse-checkout: create leading

against environment the end-user broke, no?
