I tend to agree with that assessment.  FETCH_HEAD was a required
mechanism for commands in the toolchain to communicate and wasn't
meant as a mechanism for end-users.  I do not think it is a good 
idea to add to the pile to these special files the users would need
to look at, when we do not need to.  

Even if the internal implementation uses such a file, wrapping it
with a documented command mode would make a better UI.
