Hi,

Attached is the fourth re-roll of a series to teach
'core.alternateRefsCommand' and 'core.alternateRefsPrefixes' to filter
refs from an alternate from being visible to the fork. This is done in
order to optimize a case described in patch [3/4].

As always, a range-diff is included below, showing that not much has
changed of significance since last round. I mostly focused my efforts on
taking Peff's suggestion towards a more straightforward implementation
of the test setup.

Some extra documentation was written and a couple of commit messages
amended, but no C code has changed since the v2.

Thanks again for all of your review.

Thanks,
Taylor

         Let the repository that has alternates configure this command to avoid
