Tests or code don't have a thing to do with it.  This is about how you
are presenting your changes to the rest of the git community.  As
evidenced above, said presentation is not clear enough to communicate
your goals to at least two experienced git developers (if I may say so
myself).  How are we supposed to review a change if it is not even clear
what goal it satisfies?

Again: I'll be happy to review your proposed changes if and when you
resend the series with commit messages.
