Sorry for the "raw" format of this submit. I guess I haven't figured out
yet how to add an introductory text with git send-email.

I needed the submitted feature to add a tool that wasn't easily
available as tarball (logfsprogs: Thomas showed me how to override the
download method but I couldn't have figured it out otherwise). But there
are other use-cases, like the ones in the commit message.

I hope the patch is ok, tell me if not.
