This is my fear as well.  Switching to git is not sufficient to avert that 
outcome, but I think it is necessary.

There are other things we need to do to let sunlight and fresh air into the 
room.  The people who think of Emacs as a relic of bygone decades inhabited
by graying neckbeards are not, alas, entirely wrong.  And I say that as
arguably one of the neckbeards myself...
