fetch: default to protocol version 2
The Git users at $DAYJOB have been using protocol v2 as a default for ~1.5 years now and others have been also reporting good experiences with it, so it seems like a good time to bump the default version. It produces a significant performance improvement when fetching from repositories with many refs, such as This only affects the client, not the server. (The server already defaults to supporting protocol v2.) The protocol change is backward compatible, so this should produce no significant effect when contacting servers that only speak protocol v0.
