In the beginning there was the darkness

Usually I use Magit over an existing repository, never on a freshly created one. What happens when you have a new repository? git does not report anything, obviously:
% git status
On branch master

Initial commit

nothing to commit (create/copy files and use "git add" to track)

% git log
fatal: your current branch 'master' does not have any commits yet
but what about the very situation in magit? Here’s a screenshot for the above repository: magit_initial_repository How fun!
