I guess so. In fact, dir_inside_of() already returns the relative
position, can reuse that (however, that function doesn't include the
leading path, making it a relative path; but it's not difficult to
work around). The only uncovered situation is when GIT_DIR=WORK_TREE.
But that's user's fault and I don't think we need to guarantee that
GIT_DIR will be excluded then

That's right, there is no way of knowing what the original .git file
was. I guess the only way to work around this problem is to modify
"read_gitfile()" so it saves the name of the original file. Then we
can add both that .git-file and GIT_DIR to the exclude list. Not a big
problem with me, but need to see what you guys think
