Add support for a "GIT_INDEX_FILE" environment variable.
We use that to specify alternative index files, which can be useful if you want to (for example) generate a temporary index file to do some specific operation that you don't want to mess with your main one with. It defaults to the regular ".git/index" if it hasn't been specified.
