It is a bad design taste to structure the command line argument in
such a way that it takes
git cmd xyzzy=frotz nitfol=rezrov some other args
where these 'xyzzy', 'nitfol', etc. form an unbound set. It
prevents future enhancements to the command from allowing anything
that contain '=' in "some other args" part.
Allowing not just '=' but also ':' makes it even worse.
But these are issues in the design itself. Not the issue in the
patch 17/17 that is trying to document the design. This patch under
discussion documents the bad design correctly ;-)
