Also, if the last time you used git was 1.4.x, things have gotten much, much
better. It still has a command line surface area the size of Eurasia, but
common tasks are among a short list of simple ones.

It's easy to "corrupt" your history, but also easy to recover it (There's a log
of all changes to what names refer to what, and you can usually find the commit
you lost there -- and if you can find that, you have the entire history from
that point.)

git's getting good. IT's just getting good by accretion.
