this flag bypasses normal "git aware" transport
mechanism and clones the repository by making a copy of
HEAD and everything under objects and refs directories.

+ The files under `.git/objects/` directory are hardlinked
+ to save space when possible. This is now the default when
+ the source repository is specified with `/path/to/repo`
+ syntax, so it essentially is a no-op option. To force

+ Optimize the cloning process from a repository on a
