And here's a new one:

I took a look at several of them, and none satisfied me; too
complicated, depends on another tool, hard to install, etc. This one
is simple, and works fine. Only for local repositories, and only for
fetching at the moment, but it's easy to use, and doesn't require much
to install.

I think it has good chances of getting into git mainline, and
hopefully other people will help adding the rest of the features. The
code is not hard at all :)
