I understand. And now that upstream Git 2.0.0 is out, it will be very hard
to use that as a deadline to push against. So: don't hold your breath.

Make me an offer :-P

Seriously again, I am in favor of calling it the Git for Windows SDK. But

before we can switch. Lots of unaddressed questions. Too little time.
Speaking of which... budget's depleted for today ;-)
