This is what this series needs, user's opinions (bad or good). The
other option is abort the checkout immediately. I think I made detach
behavior default is because it's more work (and needs to be proven
feasible). How about a config key that lets user decide what to do
here, abort or detach. We may change the default behavior too if
people think the current one is not good.

Wait, what danger are we talking about? I thought gc pays attention to
detached heads as well..
