Clone: first clone just the HEAD and then fetch the other commits in background

Would be nice to have a option to clone a new repository 'light' (git clone --depth=1).

Even better an additional option 'fast start' after depth=1 clone, smartgit can fill up the history slowly in the background, while people can work on the code already

There is already the option to just clone the last x commits.

I do like the idea of doing the git deepen over time.
