There's nothing objective about "Nobody every (sic) agrees changes are
good".  If it were true, no changes would get in.

Also, you don't know that any of those changes would benefit "99% of
all users".  It's a guess or an estimate but it's not based on
anything concrete.  It might be a good guess--and in this case, I
think it is--but it's not a concrete fact.  Don't make it sound like
it is.

Don't turn it around.  A number of your patches and emails poke at the
community of the Git project and you know it.  It's simply not helping
the situation.

Your clearly a bright and motivated individual--which makes it all the
more frustrating that you don't approach this differently.  I even
agree with your motivations for Git: I'd like to see less shell and
perl involved and to see Git run faster on Windows.  But I wish you'd
stop with the jabs.

And there it is again.  Predicting the future now?  Objectively and
accurately?  Please stop.
