Handwavey guess, but I've figured git to be more efficient client-side 
for some time.  Server-side I don't know about, but I've presumed that's 
the reason the switch-to-git plans haven't included switching the default 
for user-syncs to git.  I expect user/client side, git would be more 
efficient already, but as I said, that's handwavey guesses.
