Those two issues look similar at a superficial glance, but they are
fundamentally very different.  It is impossible to understand a
program without knowing the language it is written in.  But git is
just a development tool.  It is only marginally necessary -- not

In any case, remember that the problem with git is that its commands
to study the history predictably fail in certain cases.
The program I want people to write would work around that failure.
