I've never heard of the dump git protocol.  Do you mean the git

I assume here "too invasive" means "too much engineering effort"?

It sounds like a clean fix, not too invasive at all.  But I can
understand wanting a stopgap in the meantime.

Would it make sense to turn off sideband unconditionally on Windows
when using the relevant protocols?

I assume someone on the list wouldn't mind writing such a patch, so I
don't think the engineering effort would be a problem for that.
