There is *one* default behaviour, not a default-behaviour-on-Windows
or default-behaviour-on-your-favorite-OS. This is also about
maintaining repositories on more than one platform by one single
admin. Everybody should be able to depend on the default behaviour.

Can we please stop this now? You have a solution. It's not going to be
built-in or otherwise the default as things currently stand. As soon
as there is a concrete proposal to talk about we might continue that
day. For now, we're done.
