ehm, that you need git?  that you need to use git to get information
about changes?  that you need a whole new infrastructure of mirrors to
get it running (vs the rsync infrastructure)?  that you need at minimum
800MiB to be able to look at some history, iso. 286MiB as the rsync tree
is now?

Besides from that git doesn't even work on all platforms, but I can
imagine you don't care about that.
