I can understand this. But maybe this is not the case of everyone. People
on this mailing-list are developers for several years I think, and this kind of
tools may not be helpful for them because they have their own habits. When
I decide to propose this, I mostly think about people who are not allergic to
interactive tools (this allergy is highly understandable, I just say
there is a lot
of taste in the world). So maybe it could be an enhancement for git, maybe not.

I already heard about "tig" without trying it. I'll try it as soon as possible.
Thanks for your answer.
