I think you quoted what I needed to say already so I won't repeat
myself.  Earlier you said:

    If you have two checkouts associated to the same repo, "git
    checkout foo" on one checkout when "foo" is held by another
    checkout would cause the same error. I'll need to think of a
    better name than advice.checkoutTo.

and I agree; the patch needs rerolling in any case.
