I thought about this too, after writting the patch. Actually, I still I
it makes sense to warn even from the toplevel, since the point is to
teach people to stop using pathless "git add -u" for a while, so I'd say
it's easier to teach this in every condition. OTOH, the next step
(forbidding pathless "git add -u") can still allow it from the toplevel
to minimize the pain.

But I'm starting to be convinced ;-).

Any other thought on the question?
