Also I should note that Git is smart about merging and in case master
did not contain any commits beyond the point work was forked off it
Git will perform the so-called "fast-forwarding" of the master branch
by making its tip point to the tip commit in work -- the same thing
which would result from doing `git reset --hard work`.
