As mentioned previously (but late in the thread), I don't get why this
one case of --git-common-dir should not return the same thing as
--git-dir, which is an absolute directory. Especially when there is
other flag telling you whether you are in the main or another worktree,
so comparing the output for --git-dir and --git-common-dir is the
easiest way to do so, but then you have to normalize them on their own
because git returns different values pointing to the same directory.
