There was some discussion after v4. I think the open issues are:

  - the commit message is rather terse (it should describe motivation,
    and can refer to the docs for the "how")

  - the syntax might be more clear as:

       [include-if "gitdir:..."]


       [include "gitdir-is:..."]

  - there is an open question of whether we would like to go this route,
    maintaining backwards compatibility syntactically (and thus having
    these includes quietly skipped in older versions), or introduce a
    breaking syntax that could be more convenient, like:

      conditional-but-no-include-necessary = true

    I do not have a strong opinion myself, though I had written the
    original [include] assuming syntactic compatibility, and I think it
    has worked out (e.g., you can manipulate include.path via "git
    config" just as you would any other key).
