I've had a look at this and I think it will be much quicker for someone
more familiar with git-checkout-index to answer.
What git-difftool does is to create a temporary index containing only
the files that have changed (using git-update-index --index-info) and
then check this out with "git checkout-index --prefix=...". So I think
this question boils down to: does git-checkout-index still read
.gitattributes from the working tree if given --prefix?
