If we assume that there are no dangerous vc commands outside Emacs, we

In this case, the behavior of the first patch I posted here should be
acceptable, right? It's simpler, has pretty much the same effect, and
should be a tiny bit faster.

That I don't know. Both patches do almost what we expect, and having a
cached value for `vc-registered' sounds more performant when applied
often enough.

With the attached patch, `vc-git-registered' is usually called only once during the lifetime of a buffer.

For caching to be an improvement, 'git-registered value has to be invalidated separately from 'vc-backend, yet less often than `vc-git-state' is called.

Yes. I don't know, whether we will be able to handle any surprise when
using caches. There will always be a scenario which lets fail a given
algorithm. I fear.

Sure, but I'm just asking for one scenario that works better with
explicitly caching 'git-registered, instead of not calling it in
If `vc-git-state' doesn't call `vc-git-registered' (just assumes it's
t), then `vc-registered' is the latter's only client, and so its
return value is implicitly cached in 'vc-backend property.

Maybe. Could you show a patch? (Please with ChangeLog entry, I would
commit if it looks good).

* vc-git.el (vc-git-state): Don't call `vc-git-registered', assume it's always t.
(vc-git-registered): Remove caching, the function is only called once.

Thank you,
