Well, of course this is a matter of your personal workflow, but for
me, not being able to commit (or even more importantly to branch)
really is a hinderence.  I'm not sure if we are staying on topic here,
but it really surprised me after I switched from subversion to git how
much more integrated into my workflow the SCM system became, in the
sense that rather than thinking about working on a file, and making
snapshots of the file,  I am working on a commit.

I do agree that that the non-handling of metadata and (to a lesser
extent) empty directories is a hassle for using git (which is the only
one of the DVCSs that I know) for vcs-home.
