Just to remind - the reason why we clone is because we cannot rely on
the state of the original git tree. It does not have to have any
specific refspec currently checked out. It may be even a bare tree.

And one of the implementation goals was also to never touch the original
git tree, treat it as read-only. So clone it, make our own copy, and
then do everything with a local copy.

Does this make sense?
