It doesn't. git-annex-shell can be forced as the shell.

I use mr for this.

mr could be used for this

Depends .. is it really desirable to have a filesystem where a file
access can block arbitrarily long as it's transferred into place?
FUSE is a nice way to introduce lots of undesired behavior bridging the
gap between git-annex and POSIX filesystem semantics, while
git-annex's interface is designed to work well as-is.

It's a possibility. I would much like to see a UI to make git-annex
usable for more nontechnical users -- ideally an integration with an
existing file manager so there's an interface to add, get, drop files
and nice progress displays for the expensive operations. At the more
CS end of the spectrum, there are things like git-annex unused where
finding the right data structures could improve memory use and performance
