Makes sense.  More like

        prefix=$(git rev-parse --show-prefix)
        test -z "$prefix" || cd $(git rev-parse --show-cdup)
        pathspec=$(git rev-parse --prefix-pathspec "$prefix" "$1")
        git ls-files "$pathspec"

which may take prefix="D*cumentati*n" (from the previous example),
and the user may have given ":(icase)hell*.txt" to "$1".  Ideally
the scriptors shouldn't have to worry about how to add the prefix to
the user supplied pathspec.
