This makes sense.  But it is more the mechanics of what happens with
needing to update the "fetch" line for the remote in .git/config I am
more puzzled by.

For example, if I have two repos -- repoA and repoB, where repoA
contains the replace refs for repoB -- if I clone both repos with the
intent of wanting to look at the two histories, what must I do in
repoA to fetch the replace refs in the first place?

I've tried:

[remote "origin"]
        fetch =

But this results in:

% git pull
fatal: Invalid refspec

So I'm clearly not understanding something here, and even then, I'm
assuming that I can manipulate the correct "fetch" line via "git
config", it's just that I'm not sure which one to use.

I keep meaning to read up on refspec stuff because it looks so useful.
