Sorry, I don't know. But as the feature is still relatively new (and I'm sure 
this feature was not yet available 1-2 years ago), I think it's safe to assume 
newer git version are still introducing additional flavours of that feature. 
That's why I would also assume your mismatch between Mike's and your system 
might be caused by the different git versions.
