The --git argument does create a repository, so it's not a red
herring. What happens is:

# this creates a git repository in blah/.git
$ bzr init-repo --git blah

# This ignores blah/.git, since git doesn't support shared
# repositories. Instead, it creates a repository in
# blah/branchname/.git
$ bzr branch git:// blah/branchname
