My point is, what's so special about --git-dir? what about
--work-tree, or "commit -F path"? It's hard to draw a line there.
Config files are a special case, because git is the only one that
reads the file. "~" expansion depends on shell setting. If users turn
it off, they may be surprised that "~foo" is turned to /home/foo while
they really mean "~foo". Warning is the only sensible thing we could
