Actually, I do want the prompt for all other git repositories. The
problem with $HOME is that it's the default directory after logging in
or opening a terminal, so if you have git prompt sourced and your
$HOME under git, you get an unbearable delay every time you open a
terminal, or type a command, anywhere, except for a separate git

And I do believe I'm not the only one putting $HOME under git, so I
think some kind of generic solution to this problem would be nice.

If running git config on each prompt seems too expensive, do you have
any better ideas?
