My understanding of the plan was more to forbid argumentless git -u|-A
at Git 2.0 (this is the potentially harmful change), and then to
re-allow it with different semantics later.

But I'm OK with changing directly too, as long as we have warned for
some time before, and will continue to warn after for some time too.
