Others have pointed out the EOL issue, which I should have jumped on having 
seen it in CVS. So the third partition is
not a good idea, assuming this EOL issue is the underlying problem. Just to 
answer your question then- While having a
third partition is not fundamentally different from having Linux mount your 
windows partition in a dual-boot situation,
I thought it might make it easier to avoid Windows from doing whatever-it-does 
behind the scenes. I have a Win7 build VM
and it drives me nuts changing things without being asked - so maybe just my 
anti-win32 bias there.

Interesting that you don't like the Github gui. Thats an opinion to file away, 
some of my developers like using a GUI,
and they are going to have to start using Git this year.
