(In reply to Adam Weinberger from comment #1)
"gitup works, but it's not the main thing we should be encouraging. People
should use just plain git."

I strongly disagree. Git, like perl, is a Swiss Army chainsaw. (There's an
interactive webpage that's there only to guide git users toward fixing mistakes
they make using it.) A chainsaw with attached scalpels is the right tool if you
need to amputate the hindleg of a live, kicking elephant near the hip and to do
that fast. To butter my toast? Let me have a dull butter knife instead, please.
