Not adding any user documentation is fine (you explained why in the
log message), but I would really prefer to have some in-code comment
to clarify its meaning.  Is it "Please do use implicit work tree"
boolean?  Is it "This is the path to the work tree we have already
figured out" string?  Is it something else?  What is it used for,
who sets it, what other codepath that will be invented in the future
need to be careful to set it (or unset it) and how does one who
writes that new codepath decides that he needs to do so (or

I would know *today* that it is a bool to affect us, after having
discovered that we are in bare and we have set GIT_DIR (so if the
end user already had GIT_DIR, we shouldn't set it ourselves), and
also our child processes, but I am not confident that I will
