The other curious thing this broke is checksums. Git changed their
header format of tar archives, so my inbox is now filled with angry
users from package managers getting SHA1 mismatch errors on packages
that use my cgit for distribution. Of course, there's nothing that can
be done to fix this, but it is nice how sometimes angry users have
test-suite-like coverage :-).
