I like to copy-paste ready-to-use commands from HOWTOs.  

And the fewer copy-pastes I have to do, the better: less work, less that
can go wrong.

The length, and complicated-ness of the copy-pasted command line doesn't
really matter (as long as it works...).

Note: I think the document is a great idea. I really like HOWTOs with
canned commands that can be copy-pasted and will do the right thing,
without me having to think too much.

My guess is that the git clone command would be better, ie. a 4-6 old
contributed script vs. something that is standard functionality of

My understanding is that they currently pretty much will do the same
thing (symlink the individual files of the .git directory of the
original), but the git built-in functionality will move away from the
reliance on symlinks i the future.
