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.
