I would one day like to have it as part of the main distribution, too,
but it would be nice to prove its worth in the field for a while first.
I especially would like to find out how it compares in practice with the
work that is in msysgit.

Subtree seems to copy substantial parts of t/Makefile, but I suspect you
could get away with just using an "include". I'd also be OK with just
including a test script that pulls in test-lib.sh, and letting people
run it manually (the Makefile infrastructure is really about running a
lot of tests, but if there's only one script, it's not so hard).
