I doubt that, but again, there's no point in preaching to those who
don't want to hear.

Do you actually do that? I can enumerate a long list of what's wrong
with that. E.g., all my git clones remembered but Egit replace the ones

your limited use cases for it work fine for you.

different on different machines.
