Actually, what is the reasoning behind this difference? It almost
seems like a bug. I think I have just thought it was too obvious to be
a bug before, but thinking more about it, I can't see any reason why
"git checkout $rev" should delete files, but "git checkout $rev ."
shouldn't. I hope I'm just hallucinating or missing something. Can
someone shed some light on this?
