This behavior is due to change in the future, but let's test
it anyway. That helps make sure we do not accidentally
switch the behavior too soon while we are working in the
area, and it means that we can easily verify the change when
we do make it.

We didn't seem to be testing this transition at all. I think it's sane
to do so now, and Junio's "now it is 2.0, let's switch" patch should
update the test.
