OK.

Shouldn't this new test come after the existing optimization, which
allows us to leave without loading the blob contents (which is
needed once you call diff_filespec_is_binary())?

Please never never ever do the above two unless you are writing a
test that checks low-level repository details.

If you want a clean history that has specific lineage of commits
without getting affected by commits that have been made by the
previous test pieces, it is OK to "checkout --orphan" to create an
empty history to work with.
