I'm afraid I'm on a weekly git schedule at best, sorry. Just trying to
catch up on this:

Admittedly, I simply don't know about "3.". I know only 1. and 2. (and
don't remember why they are implemented differently).

Are they documented/decribed somewhere?

Meanwhile, I'm rebasing on top of the %G related patches by Junio and
Jeff and hope to send out a v4 later today.
