You assume that many people use VC with Git.  But that is not
necessarily so; I suspect that most people who use Git from Emacs (as
opposed to the shell) do it via magit instead.

IMO, if VC is to win hearts on the Git front, it should grow more
features, not less.  It is IMO sad, if not ridiculous, that I cannot
uncommit the last commit, and have to go outside Emacs for that.
Likewise with 'amend' and 'cherrypick' and half a dozen of other
commands we use every day in our workflows.
