One crucial question is whether the information in the .git directory
contains (in any way) the absolute location of the directory.  That
is, if I have a working copy of the project, with its .git directory,
and I move (or copy) the whole directory tree to somewhere else, is
the moved copy a correct Git working-copy-and-.git-directory?
