Hmmmm.  Should this be passing the bit unconditionally?  Shouldn't
it be set only when we are doing lazy clone?  A non-lazy clone that
merely uses sparse checkout has nowhere else to turn to if it loses
a blob object that currently is not necessary to complete a checkout,
unlike a repository with promisor.

I agree. I believe this logic should only be triggered when running in a partial clone repo. Otherwise, we're potentially changing the behavior of 'normal' repos unnecessarily.
