Yeah, it would probably make more sense to extract the conditional.  I
just thought it was unnecessary to pass the argument around, but feel
free to go either way on this one.

Isn't prefix guaranteed to be set by setup_git_directory()?  If I
wanted to check it nevertheless, I'd probably put in a die("internal
error") before this line.  Feel free to go either way though.
