Ask Junio. He is the one arguing that foreign tools should live in their
own repository out-of-tree.

All right, I guess that' something, but I get:

  Use of each() on hash after insertion without resetting hash iterator
  results in undefined behavior, Perl interpreter: 0x1fec010 at
  /usr/lib/git-core/git-archimport line 129.

  WARNING: no rule found for checking signatures from

    Consider creating ~/.arch-params/signing/
    or ~/.arch-params/signing/=default.check

I'll leave it running and see how it goes.

Still, if it's part of the core, it should have tests.
