Very true, you can't replace quilt with git without ruining both of them. But it would be nice to take a quilt tree and turn it into a git tree for merging purposes, or to make use of whatever visualization tools might exist someday.

Fair enough. The thing is, going from quilt->git really is a pretty "big decision", since it's the decision that says "I will now really commit all this quilt changes forever and ever".

Which is also why I think it's actually ok to take a minute to do 100
quilt patches. This is not something you do on a whim. It's something
you'd better think about. It's turning a very fluid environment into a
unchangable, final thing.

what if you turned the forest of quilt patches into a forest of git trees? (essentially applying each patch against the baseline seperatly) would this make sense or be useful?

There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to make it so 
simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other way is to make 
it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.
