I was aware of the removal of --follow because I wanted it there too :-)
Apart from the problem described on the bug report, IIRC other people
mentioned that it makes the command significantly slower, so it is not a
good candidate as a default.
Maybe we can test for the presence of --follow and remove it from the
git command when the target is a directory?
