- * Search a worktree that can be unambiguously identified by
- * "arg". "prefix" must not be NULL.
+ * Search for the worktree identified unambiguously by `arg` -- typically
+ * supplied by the user via the command-line -- which may be a pathname or some
+ * shorthand uniquely identifying a worktree, thus making it convenient for the
+ * user to specify a worktree with minimal typing. For instance, if the last
+ * component (say, "foo") of a worktree's pathname is unique among worktrees
+ * (say, "work/foo" and "work/bar"), it can be used to identify the worktree
+ * unambiguously.
+ *
+ * `prefix` should be the `prefix` handed to top-level Git commands along with
+ * `argc` and `argv`.
+ *
+ * Return the worktree identified by `arg`, or NULL if not found.
