You are arguing for scripting language binding like what Swig
creates.  While that would also be a worthy addition, having
language binding is not the only way to do _script_.

What Linus is saying is that he wants you to talk with git
plumbing by invoking the executables he have, via system(3),
popen(3), etc.

The C-level first has to be libified before you can start
talking about host language bindings but that just started to
happen and is not ready yet.  However, you can use and benefit
from GIT without waiting for that kind of integration, if you
use the "spawning the executables" approach.  I agree with him.
