We might want to make sure the repositories are on 'master' before using
'git pull' as that will scramble a tree which is sitting on another
branch. Also, might be useful to avoid pulling into a tree which has
changes. Hmm. there should be an easy way to automate all of that...

I've also complained to the git list about the speed of git-fetch; turns
out it's limited by local CPU performance as it is a shell script. The
actual network transaction takes very little time. However, we should
come up with a mechanism for discovering which trees actually need
updating and skip the clean ones; that's really the only way to make
this fast enough for people to use.
