FWIW, I as a user would sure like a git-based tree.  Doing git whatchanged 
searches on individual files and being able to track my last checkout and 
roll back to it, or to a point between it and current HEAD, are extremely 
useful.  I haven't thought of it much until now, but I think maintaining 
overlays as simple branches would be great, as well.
