What are the risks, assuming I won't delete the referenced repo which
sits on the same partition of the same local disk as the new one?

I prefer it to worktree because I often just do have master checked out
in multiple directories and worktree would be unhappy about that... and
the risk of accidentally deleting the base worktree are IMHO the same as
the risk of deleting the referenced repo.

Anything that I am missing?  (In other words, do I know what I am doing? :-)
