There's a general push to move from scripts to C code, that's mainly
about shell code, but I guess perl as well.

These are the scripts I see in the Makefile: git-archimport.perl
git-cvsexportcommit.perl git-cvsimport.perl git-cvsserver.perl
git-send-email.perl git-svn.perl

The only one I use is git-send-email, which I've wanted to rewrite in
Ruby for a while, but it's probably not acceptable by upstream.
