I would be very surprised if either of these approaches is used by most
developers using git, because if so, I'd have expected them to be part
of the standard toolkit and well documented.  So I think my workflow is
suboptimal for git.  What do people who have several branches of a
single project repository and want to build from one of them without
including changes from another in the build usually do?  Isn't that a
common scenario, especially for Emacs developers?  What do you people do?
