Huh?  Why would you need to do that?  Anyway, even if you think you need
another checked out work copy (and with git I am very rarely in that
situation), you can either clone your original repository (optionally
using hard links to its object store to save space) or at least tell git
to reuse its object store.

I don't see why you would need more than one tree to work with at any
given point of time.  And even then, you can tell git to share all the
respective data.  Either using a single repository (probably the sanest
variant with regard to pulling and updates) or multiple ones.
