Yep, -s (--shared) makes cloning really cheap.  One of my goals is to get

	git clone -s https://example.com/torvalds/linux.git


	git clone -s https://example.com/torvalds/linux.git/clone.bundle

working.  That would make it easier for new contributors to
setup lightweight clones and pull in history on an as-needed
basis w/o hacks like shallow cloning.
