Yes, I should change the subject to:

  transport-helper: update remote helper namespace, because that's
exactly the thing we DON'T want to do, the purpose of this patch is to
mess up everything

Suree. I'm willing and knowingly introducing a change that goes
diametrically opposite to what we want.

That is irrelevant. Junio said the correct behavior was not described,
when if fact it clearly is. Whether or not the patch has a bug in it
is irrelevant to the fact that the correct behavior is described or

Sure, and where is the thinking not clear? The remote helper ref is
not updated, so we do update it. How is that not clear?

Oh, it does. You just don't understand how remote-helper works.

I'm sorry, did you actually hit an issue that required to look at the
commit message to understand where the issue came from? No? Then I
won't bother with hypotheticals.

If you want to waste your time, by all means, rewrite all my commit
messages with essays that nobody will ever read. I'm not going to do
that for some hypothetical case that will never happen. I'm not going
to waste my time.
