Warning: git fanboi-ism ahead.

I like the concept too. But I worry a bit that we are re-inventing
things that could be done by git.  What do people think about a similar
namespace import export tool where we rely on git for a transport layer,
and for merging, conflict-resolution, and history tracking. Of course
there are details to be settled, but before I try to work them out,
would anyone like to convince me the idea is fundementally wrong headed?
Jesse, do you remember why you decided to roll your own?  I agree it is
subjective what is easier, but I think we have enough people comfortable
with git that collaborative maintenence of a bug-tag git repo would be
pretty easy.
