Git as of present does not mandate presence of Python to work
(only Perl for certain tools like git-svn and Tcl/Tk for two stock GUI 
tools) [2].
Hence Git for Windows does not currently include Python support though a 
"first stab" patch exists [1].

I think this is the only viable alternative currently short of helping
guys in the Git for Windows project to get Python in the right shape.
