Actually, is there a reason the git-native "init.templateDir"
configuration variable isn't sufficient?

i.e. something about public-inbox git repos should be set/unset
which is fundamentally incompatible with code-oriented git repos?

I've been trying to use normal git defaults and directives as
possible to minimize the learning curve.

I've started working on a dirty patch to implement this feature;
but it's rather intrusive and I'm not sure I like it...
