Oops, haven't seen that new feature :x  And haven't tried, pu @
8d9027fa59b943db96a8a9090ec31d7f0f935596 is broken due to
conflicts with hashmap (probably won't have time for a bit to
look at it).

What I'm hoping to do with "git clone -s" would be client-only
and compatible with existing HTTP servers that run
"git update-server-info".
