Back-merged a handful of topics that have been out on the 'master' branch to 'maint', in preparation of the next maintenance release 126.96.36.199. Also merged topics that have been cooking in 'next' down to 'master'. The cycle is progressing smoothly, even though I haven't managed to advance the "magic pathspec" topic I wanted to have in 1.7.6 fully cooked yet.
The streaming interface is coming along slowly but steadily. It mostly is looking at the "slurp everthing into the memory" implementations in sha1_file.c and figuring out how to restructure the existing code there.
