I also don't see the usefulness of having .git postfixes (it does have a
*point* though, it just does not convince me) in hives that are
obviously bare. Like, if you go into /srv/git, you would expect bare
repos, as is the case when doing a fetch from git:// or
ssh://server/srv/git/... For storing bare git repos in ~, a .git suffix
can be helpful.
