IMHO, the operations one needs to do with git are simple enough that adding the
complexity of having the user choose and others support multiple tools is not
worth it.

If you're only using vanilla ports and poudriere, I believe you can get ports
and build packages without ever running git directly, instead having poudriere
run it via "poudriere ports -c" and "poudriere ports -u". For anything past
that, you're going to be making changes to ports and then need to use git
proper in order to generate patches.

And to me, we should be able to provide packages that meet users needs without
them having to build them themselves, which puts any package building into the
realm of ports developers, but I know we're not there yet.
