Add a null fetch negotiator. This is introduced to allow partial clones
to skip the unneeded negotiation step when fetching missing objects
using a "git fetch" subprocess. (The implementation of spawning a "git
fetch" subprocess will be done in a subsequent patch.) But this can also
be useful for end users, e.g. as a blunt fix for object corruption.

I understand the value of this negotiator. I'm concerned about using
"null" as the name, since it has a clear relationship to zero-valued
pointers and that's not what is happening. (My gut feeling starting the
patch was that some function pointers would be NULL or something.)

Instead, might I recommend "noop" or "no_op" in place of "null" here?

Thanks,

Personally I am OK with null [*], but noop is also fine.

	Side note.  I actually would find it good to establish the
	pattern that something that does not use NULL pointer as its
	implementation detail can be called null if "null-ness" of
	its behaviour is its defining characteristics.

Thanks.

OK, in a future version I'll go with "noop".
