My initial reaction, too. It was hard enough to get Perl included with Git
for Windows (because of that pesky Subversion dependency).
As you can see from the commit history, I was the primary force behind
trying to get everything "core" in Git away from requiring scripting
languages (I think it is an awesome thing to provide APIs for as many
languages as possible, but a not-so-cool thing to use more than one
language in the core code). It does not seem that anybody picked up that
task when I left, though.
