Just had a weird idea, though after searching looks like I mightn't have been the only one in history to have it [1]:

Have you ever tried jgit [2] on windows i.e. that pure java reimplementation of git? It was mostly developed by and for use with Eclipse (ugh), but actually has its own little standalone command line interface. Not as featureful as real git, but pretty self-contained, it looks like it might have just about enough for a reasonable dev workflow on its own [3].

This is not a recommendation, I've never used the thing, might be a dead end, but OTOH might be worth a look.
