git currently has the archive command that allows to save an arbitrary
revision into a tar or zip file. Sometimes it is useful to not save this
revision into an archive but to directly put all files into an arbitrary
directory. Currently this seems to be not possible to archive directly;
the only way I found to do it is to run git archive and then directly
unpack the archive into a directory.

    git --git-dir REPO archive REVISION | tar x

It would be nice to have a command or simply a switch to git archive
that allows the user to put the files of REVISION into a directory
instead of making an archive.

Thank you very much for your help. Yours,

Robert Clausecker
