Actually, I am reading the conditional the other way, but the
conclusion "defaulting from unknown mode to regular blob is
necessary whether the user gave us a path or not" is the same.
The current code may fail if --path is not available and 40-hex that
does not give us any context of look up is given because it won't be
able to decide how to filter, so using "else if" would not have
practical difference there, but conceptually it still is wrong.
