I don't think this does anybody any service. If the current behavior
is wrong, and if users all over the Internet is any indication, it is;
we do not want to continue such bad behavior. If the new
functionality has a different behavior, it only makes sense to change
the old behavior to make it consistent.

Perpetuating bad behavior choices only hurt the users, we need to
start thinking how to make git more user friendly, not worry too much
about keep doing what we did five years ago.

Sure, we should not break user expectations from one day to the next,
but that doesn't mean we can't change anything ever.
