Hmm, I don't think we need to expand the index here.
ignore_skip_worktree makes the loop below ignore entries with the
skip_worktree bit set. Since sparse dirs also have this bit set, we
will already get the behavior we want :)

However, I think we will need to expand the index at
`find_pathspecs_matching_against_index()` in order to find and warn
about the pathspecs that have matches among skip_worktree entries...

Hmm, I see :( I was trying to think if it would be possible to do the
pathspec matching (for the warning) without having to expand the
index, but then there are the untracked files... If the user gives
"a/*/c" and we have "a/b/" as a sparse dir, we don't know if "a/b/c"
is a skip_worktree entry or an untracked file without expanding the
index...

I think this behavior would be tricky to replicate on non-sparse-index
sparse-checkouts, if we were to do that. We would have to pathspec
match each untracked file against the sparsity patterns, perhaps?
