Well, can't argue with looks :)

I prefer "emacs-" for consistency, but the practical reason I want it is
so that emacs-packages? recognizes magit.  That way, if I package some
magit extensions, I don't need to manually tweak the load path in their
package definitions (I think, at least; was looking at the issue a while

Anyway, that's of course a minor "issue" and not necessarily a good
reason to prefix magit.  Your patch just reminded me.
