Finally gotten started on the borg special remote idea. A prerequisite of that is remotes that can be imported from, but not exported to. So I actually started by allowing setting importtree=yes without exporttree=yes. A lot of code had assumptions about that not being allowed, so it took a while to chase down everything. Finished most of that yesterday.

What I've done today is added a thirdPartyPopulated type of remote, which git-annex sync can "pull" from by using the existing import interface to list files on it, and determine which of them are annex object files. I have not started on the actual borg remote at all, but this should be all the groundwork for it done.

(I also finished up annex.stalldetection earlier this week.)
