The task is actually much easier than this.  All we have to do is
finalize the list of fields that will mandatorily be written to the
link object.  As I might have indicated in my series, this is:
upstream_url, checkout_rev, and ref_name.  Really, the user only needs
to supply a valid upstream_url: after a clone, everything else can be
inferred (with the exception of a ref_name conflict; I don't like

Other fields are like .git/config fields.  We can add new key/value
pairs in the future, without worrying about migration.  A problem
arises only if we want to add a new mandatory field, change the
default value of a key, or deprecate an existing key/value pair.
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
