Thanks for the detailed explanation, Shawn, much appreciated.

We need this to automatically pull new AOSP projects to our mirror at
http://android.git.linaro.org , and just had some old code using
ls-projects which worked at kernel.org times. It probably makes sense
to just rewrite it to use a manifest instead, especially if there's
one maintained to list all projects, so it won't take parsing multiple
manifests in multiple branches.
