Because it's simple and it makes sense.

Nonsense.  How do I set a custom reflog action when a certain flag is
passed to my script (like git-rebase.sh:333) without *overriding* an
existing GIT_REFLOG_ACTION?  How do I construct cute start/pick/reword
prefixes elegantly (like in
git-rebase--interactive.sh:comment_for_reflog()) without *overriding*
an existing GIT_REFLOG_ACTION?  In both these examples, I'm setting a
GIT_REFLOG_ACTION for the "rest of the code" to use.  I don't care
about the exact command sequence, but I know that they respect
GIT_REFLOG_ACTION; so I'm setting one in advance.

When calling out to an external scriptlet, I want to define my own
reflog message: when I call out to "am" from "rebase -i", it should
write a "rebase -i: " message, and ignoring its own
set_reflog_message().  _That_ can be done using the subshell thing you
proposed.  And I have absolutely no clue why

    git am

is "more scalable" than

  git am

You just gave set_reflog_action() and GIT_REFLOG_ACTION some sort of
God status, and proposed to make the scripts more ugly and less

... and we're discussing absolutely trivial inconsequential rubbish
once again.  In any case, I've given up on arguing with you as it is
clear that I can't possibly win.  Do whatever you want.
