Agreed, except that git-convert-cache and git-fsck-cache actually have
nothing to do this the index by any name, and should probably be
git-convert-objects and git-fsck-objects.

I think "fetch" is more applicable to what they do.

I don't think it matters very much whether something is a script or not;
on the other hand, it would be good to have "git" list a reasonable set of
commands to use through the interface, which would exclude, for example,
git-merge-one-file-script, and include the above commands.
