Yeah, we have traditionally been kind of lazy about the distinction,
because it doesn't really matter for our build system (i.e., libgit.a is
not _really_ a library, but just a convenience in the build process). So
one option is just not caring about these. I'm also fine with fixing.

I'd probably say bisect.c for the first, and commit.c for the latter
(that is where commit_list functions are defined, and it is really about

I think I'd rather have fetch-pack.c and send-pack.c than putting them
into transport.c (which is getting kind of bloated already).

I'm not sure (to be honest, I am not even sure of the intended
difference between diff.c and diff-lib.c). That function is really not
for general diffing, but for diff-like commands. Probably it would be OK
in diff.c.
