    Dear diary, on Wed, Apr 13, 2005 at 07:01:34PM CEST, I got a letter
    where Daniel Barkalow <> told me that...

    How is it unhappy? That would likely be a bug, unless you do something
    which really *needs* the tree populated and doesn't make sense otherwise
    (show-diff aka git diff w/o arguments, for example).

    Given that what would you copy with cp -r and wipe shortly after
    (objects db) is likely to be significantly larger than the working tree
    itself, checkout-cache would be wiser anyway.

    98% of the time I am right. Why worry about the other 3%.
