[PATCH] git wrapper: add --git-path=<path> and --bare options

From: Johannes Schindelin <Johannes.Schindelin@gmx.de>
Date: 2006-07-26 04:24:22
With this, you can say

	git --bare repack -a -d

inside a bare repository, and it will actually work. While at it,
also move the --version, --help and --exec-path options to the
handle_options() function.

While at documenting the new options, also document the --paginate
option.

	The change in builtin-help.c is not only clean, but is also
	necessary for t0000 on cygwin.

	I have to run off now, but will answer your comments in
	about three hours.
