Same here. Not terribly disturbing, but I did get the warning
occasionally, even though I'm the author of the patch introducing
it ;-).

Somehow, but we may find a way to do so, as long as it temporary (i.e.
something that will have no effect after the transition period), and
that is is crystal clear that it's temporary.

All proposals up to now were rejected because of the risk of confusing
users (either shutting the warning blindly, or letting people think they
could keep the current behavior after Git 2.0).
