You do not have to say that to me _now_ ;-) because after makinng
the above ancient comment others have corrected me, I agreed with
them, and we no longer rely on that "you are detaching, danger
ahead" warning.

With the same line of reasoning, the place where users make commits
on detached HEAD is not where the danger arises, either; the real
danger is where you switch out of the detached HEAD state, and I
think we do give a loud warning there.
