Maybe it is just me, but the fact that accessing the manpage is now:

  man gitremote-helpers

feels weird to me. I know it technically follows our syntactic rules,
but having the lack of dash be significant between "git" and "remote",
but then having a dash later makes it hard on the eyes.

Would it make more sense to just call it "gitremotehelpers", and then
access it as:

  git help remotehelpers


  man gitremotehelpers


That has it its own ugliness (two words run together), but at least my
version of man will accept arbitrary capitalization, allowing:

  git help remoteHelpers


  man gitremoteHelpers

I dunno.
