Yeah, it had been my plan to limit it only via upload-pack, under the
assumption that somebody probably wanted it on the local side. If you,
who added it, are OK with removing it completely, that gives me more
confidence that nobody is using it (coupled with the general
experimental nature of partial clones at this point). But I'm still a
little worried somebody may have found a use for it in the meantime.
