Yeah, another thing that may be worth checking is if this was
written/corrupted by hand, in which case there is no need to worry
about it further, or by something else, e.g. reimplementations such
as jgit and libgit2, or a third-party tool that wants to be
compatible with Git, in which case we do want to see that get fixed.
