The sparse index extension is used to signal that index writes should be
in sparse mode. This was only updated using GIT_TEST_SPARSE_INDEX=1.

Add a '--[no-]sparse-index' option to 'git sparse-checkout init' that
specifies if the sparse index should be used. It also updates the index
to use the correct format, either way. Add a warning in the
documentation that the use of a repository extension might reduce
compatibility with third-party tools. 'git sparse-checkout init' already
sets extension.worktreeConfig, which places most sparse-checkout users
outside of the scope of most third-party tools.

Update t1092-sparse-checkout-compatibility.sh to use this CLI instead of
GIT_TEST_SPARSE_INDEX=1.

Heh, looks like you're addressing my comments on the last patch about
jgit.  If I would have just read on...

One side question, though -- I thought I remembered seeing that we
record index versions or extension information directly in the index,
so that third party tools have a way of noting that the index has
something they won't understand, rather than just reading values that
appear to be corrupt to them.  Perhaps I missed it, but have you done
anything like that with this series?

This all makes sense, but between partial clones, sparse-checkouts and
sparse-indexes, I wonder if we're overloading users with terms and
conditions.  Perhaps that's inevitable in the short-term due to the
various caveats that exist, but I'd just like to put out a fuzzy
high-level goal of allowing users in the future to just specify "I
want a sparse clone of this stuff" with as few special knobs and flags
as possible.  I don't want them to have to specify all of the
individual things that means, such as they want (a) the history to be
sparse (i.e. partial clone), (b) the checkout to be sparse, (c) the
index to be sparse, (d) several commands to operate in a sparse
manner, limiting their output based on the sparsity paths (hopefully
they aren't required to list each one), and (e) several other commands
shouldn't be limited by the sparsity paths.  I guess it might be nice
to _allow_ them to specify all the things it means for users who want
control, but it'd be nice to avoid requiring it of all users.

I need to take a break from reviewing again at this point and work on
some other tasks.  I'll resume reviewing the series later, perhaps
tomorrow afternoon.

I appreciate your efforts here! I'm delaying detailed responses until
enough time has passed for interested parties to comment. If it helps,
then focusing on the "big things" is most important for now. I'll be
more careful about typos and things when I submit patches for full
review.

For my part, I'm taking time to look around at other things that need
my attention after being heads-down on this prototype. The sparse
index will need proper care to implement and I'm not expecting it to
move very quickly.

Thanks,
