I didn't add a config option to disable the new code path, because it's really awkward to document, and I think it would be annoying to use if I made more fixes (the other case where files are spuriously listed, involving exec bits, probably has little impact on repo size/pull performance but it may be worth fixing anyway because it causes confusion). But if there are downsides to what I did, the config option is still on the table.
  I'm still fuzzy on how all of the manifest stuff works in general.  But it looks like the previous patch addresses my convert concerns, so I'm OK with not having a config option to disable this.
