Well, they require custom aliases and configs and do not work exactly as
before.  Adding -e '*.obj' at least prevents it from descending into our
nanobsd .obj directories which are owned by root and don't have r+o (which
causes 40 lines of terminal spam).

And they are aliases, so 15 years of muscle memory no longer work.

The whole problem is that git is backwards.  I should be able to locally
override the repo config without resorting to command lines,aliases and
creative hacks, but I cannot.
