I don't want to provide choices and complexity.  I want to provide
simple instructions.  But the better the results ends up being, the
better the instructions are.

If there is a way to get two separate branches checked out at the same
time without doubling the disk spaces used, that would be nice.  The
answer currently seems to be "use git-new-workdir", unless there's
something one of the git experts has said somewhere that I missed, which
is entirely possible.
