The instructions for disabling a sparse-checkout to a full
working directory are complicated and non-intuitive. Add a
subcommand, 'git sparse-checkout disable', to perform those
steps for the user.

In the synopsis [] means optional, but I think the subcommands are not
optional; however, the options are:

  git sparse-checkout (init|list|set|disable) [<options>]

Perhaps it would be even better if each subcommand had its own
synopsis line in the short help, see e.g. 'git notes -h' or 'git
remote -h'.

-Another tricky thing is fully repopulating the working directory when you
