I am not fundamentally opposed to such a change, as long as the
change does not affect performance at all when the feature is not
used, and the resulting code does not become too ugly.

Use of the "reencode" feature may have to make things slow, but you
have to spend some cycle to do what the feature has to do anyway,

$ git grep -l -e '--stdin' Documentation/git*

may be a good starting point.
