Comments: Wouldn't that mean git-*-scripts would not benefit from this
          because git-sh-setup would set GIT_DIR for you even if
          you don't?

          Even if you do not have to do discovery, it may make
          more sense to do the pathname translation (making them
          all relative to the project root) for consistency.

          If you can do "cd drivers && git-diff-files ../net"
          that would be very useful.  More realistically, people
          would very much appreciate if stripping the leading ./ in
          "find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 git-blah-command".

Like:     Yes, you finally saw the light ;-).

Dislike:  I believe I was one of the original proponent for this
          kind of thing, so no.
