Simple, I keep all my projects on the same server, so I would like to

"git+ssh://" insteadOf "remote-repo"

In what way do you think that `git remote add` handles the path?

All `git remote add` does is add a new "remote.<name>.url" entry to the
configuration file with the value as given on the command line.  The
insteadOf mapping will only be applied when you try to fetch from/push
to the remote.

Regardless of the implementation of the commands, if I do

    mkdir projectA
    cd projectA
    git init .
    git remote add origin remote-repo/projectA.git
    git pull origin master

I get a working repository. If I do

    git clone remote-repo/projectA.git

all I will get is an error.

I do not see any reason (UX-wise) why the two sequences of commands shouldn't work the same when used on the same URL.
