gitk is unlikely to be used on an embedded system, the perl pieces more so.
I have never understood why people complain about readability in perl.
Just because it uses the ascii charset a bit more? You expect a
mathematician or indeed any scientist to use special symbols to mean
special things, why not programmers?
Perhaps people should be forced to use COBOL for a few years (like I
did, a long while ago) to appreciate brevity.
