+ * Recent update to "git stash pop" made the command empty the index
+ when run with the "--quiet" option, which has been corrected.
+ * "git fetch" codepath had a big "do not lazily fetch missing objects
+ when I ask if something exists" switch. This has been corrected by
+ marking the "does this thing exist?" calls with "if not please do not
+ lazily fetch it" flag.
+ * Test update to avoid wasted cycles.
