Do you mean it is a bad idea to support or a bad idea to make use of
such support?

I suggested --no- for consistency with current git commands that use
parseopt.  But on second thought, I agree that it be confusing for

        --prefix=foo --no-prefix

to mean something different from no --prefix parameter at all.

The documentation says



                Before Git 2.0, the default prefix was "" (no prefix).
                This meant that ...

which suggests that I can use --prefix="" to mean no prefix.  Perhaps
it needs a note to suggest using '--prefix ""' instead?
