Another way to handle this is perhaps to teach test-lib.sh a way to
tell it that we want to live in the world where the initial default
branch name is 'main' and use that at the beginning of these select
test scripts like t3200.  Then we can do three related things in a
single patch to t3200, which are:

 - Declare that any "git init" in this test (including the initial
   one) uses 'main' as the default branch name;

 - rename 'master' used in the test to 'main'

 - rename 'master2' used in the test to 'main2'

and it would eliminate the awkwardness.

The change to test-lib.sh would likely to use init.defaultBranch
which also would be a good thing.
