Where are we with the inclusion of got(1) [1] in base?

* It has reached a good maturity level
* Stefan Sperling reacts quite fast to issues
* It makes the base system complete and suitably replaces svnlite
* It does not impose the huge complexity and dependency hierarchy of the 
original Git client on admins and other non-developers

The original hold-up appears to have been an ex nihilo requirement
that it must be Capsicum-ized.  Somebody was working on this, but
has gone silent.

gitup is not Capsicum-ized either.
