As explained in my other email, this documentation change does not
remove all of the reasons that users might want to use mark files.  I
would still like to show users how they can load the files into Git as
two separate steps.

Nevertheless, it *would* be nice to add the Windows equivalent of the
"cat" pipeline.  I knew about the "type" command but I was under the
impression that it is intended for text files and can corrupt binary
files.  Are you sure that using "type" as you suggest is binary-clean?
