In particular, it changes the user's Git configuration. And if somebody just copy-pastes in into their terminal, it will bork their global Git config.

The Git configuration should be a good one for Emacs development, and these commands (at least the transfer.fsckObjects part) should be done before the first 'git clone' command. That being said, you're right that people who aren't contributing to Emacs don't need a development-oriented Git configuration. So I separated the development-oriented commands from the fetch-and-build commands by installing the attached patch into master.
