I felt it was important that the metadata format be able to specify
git's entire metadata and DAG semantics.  Otherwise, as sure as the
sun rises, *somebody* would run into a corner case not covered, and
(quite rightly) curse me for a shortsighted fool who had done a
half-assed job.

I don't do half-assed jobs.  Not ever, no way, nohow.
