I'll document that better in PATCHv4.

This will be fixed with PATCHv4 to do multiple lines (as defined by the
netrc manpage, etc.).

Yes.  I'll make the host/machine token required, which will avoid this

I'd prefer to ignore "default" because it should not be used for the Git
credential helpers (its only use case is for anonymous services AFAIK).
So I'll add a case to ignore it in PATCHv4, if that's OK.

To be fixed in PATCHv4, which will require the host/machine, use it as
the primary key, and only examine entries with it.

JCH> I would probably structure this part like this: [...]

I will do it like that, thank you for the suggestion.

I'll also add a simple testing Makefile for my own use, and you can
consider adding tests to the general framework later.
