An extension to the "git" stupid content tracker to find any files
and symbolic links currently known to git (registered in the index)
by certain criteria (mostly pathname matching) without requiring
filesystem access or filtering out ignored files.
The list of files can also be passed to findutils for postprocessing,
making all of find's filters available at the cost of, albeit limited,
filesystem access, but only for smallish repositories due to certain
limitations in findutils.
This extension is intended to eventually be merged in git-core; this
packaging merely bridges the time gap until then.
