It's because I don't know enough about what libgit2's state is, and I
wanted to keep the scope limited.  Naturally, the next step would then
be to implement the lacking functionality (if any) in libgit2 so that
the test suite passes.  I just don't know if that's trivial, or
something for the "if we have time" section of the project, or too much

(I did do a quick "can we reasonably link against libgit2" test where I
gave git-cat-file a --libgit2 option that loads blobs with libgit2.
There are some name collisions in the git_config* identifiers that need
to be resolved, but otherwise it seems entirely possible.)
