Sound good.  

I recall that "clear repo should treat the_repository special" was
discussed when we saw the patch that became 74373b5f ("repository:
fix free problem with repo_clear(the_repository)", 2018-05-10),
instead of treating only the index portion specially.  Perhaps it
was a more correct approach after all?
