Yep, most probably.  Didn't want to cheat.  I corrected myself in a
follow-up.  All I'm saying is that in all the various threads about this
issue this past couple of weeks, we've seen many pro-git hackers, but
not as many pro-others.

But I particularly think your low-level vs higher-level separation is
very real.  Which leads me to think that there's no reason why all GNOME
modules have to live in the same kind of repository.
