There's any number of ways to handle this problem with Git.  We cannot
possibly describe all of them on the Wiki, not without confusing the
heck out of the reader.  Experienced Git users will be able to find
the way that suits them even without reading the Wiki.

In any case, I will mention git-new-workdir, which seems to be the
other popular method.  And there's always a possibility of changing
the recommendations in the future, if experience shows that changes
are needed.
