Why would people need to use "git remote set-head" most of the time? The
symlink is set up properly by git-clone, and has been for many years.
For most people, using "origin" just works (the exception is people who
"git init" and then "git remote add origin" themselves; since we're
guessing at numbers, I would guess that _that_ population is less than
1% of users).
