What I've been working on was to:

 * have git-cvsimport.perl in the source

 * install it as $(bindir)/git-cvsimport

 * simplify 'git' (whose source is of course in '') to
   only do: 

     cmd="$1"; shift; exec "git-$cmd" ${1+"$@"}

Naturally, the rewrite of git-cvsimport in shell or C would look
the same to git.

One potential downside (for people who consider this a downside)
is that you cannot easily run uninstalled, but you already
cannot run tools/git-applymbox and git-cherry-pick uninstalled
anyway, and I do not think it is such a big deal.
