What I mean by "trace" is "able to provide the history of". How Git
organizes its repository is not interesting to me; what information
Git can provide me is. Like any software, Git could reorganize its
internal structure in the next revision, and as long as all the
commands continued to deliver the same information to me, it doesn't
matter to me.
