The analysis about the major version number being significant is
correct. By default vsatisfies assumes that a major version number
change means all lesser versions are incompatible. However, you can
prevent that assumption using an unlimited check by appending a - (minus
sign) to the version to yield an open ended range. Or by giving another
range. So the only change required is to append a minus.

  package vsatisfies $::_git_version 1.7.0-

will suffice.

  package vsatisfies $::_git_version 1.7.0 2.0.0

would work but would cause failures when we arrive at git 3.0
