vc-git is not of release-quality (C-u C-x v = usually chokes while
trying to propose a "previous version").  However, the Emacs 23
release is not exactly around the door, and having it synched into
Emacs-CVS might be nice.  At the current point of time, it is
maintained in git's git repository.  Not all people with write access
there will have a copyright assignment.  So one would have to check
who actually wrote stuff in it.

We seem to have Xavier Maillard, David Kågedal, Jakub Narebski,
Alexandre Julliard, Sam Vilain, Karl Hasselström, Ville Skyttä, Tom
Prince (trivial change).  So that is not exactly an entirely small
list.  I can ask on the git list if people think this a good idea.
