Heh, true, the behavior according to my description does make sense,
it's just that my description was wrong; sorry :-(.

What "git reset $pathspec" returns is not "whether HEAD differs from
index" (as I wrote), but "whether worktree differs from index". So
"git reset" and "git reset ." will return different exit codes if
there are changes in the worktree as compared to HEAD before the
invocation. I hope that's clearer.
