        With Git, I use it strictly as a substitute for the (otherwise
        unavailable) vc-commit.

        My Git usage is neither typical nor exemplary, but I both
        git-fetch(1) and git-push(1) from outside of the chroot
        environments I use for development.  (If only because such
        environments lack access to the relevant SSH keys.)

        I have no objections against such features as long as they’re
        optional and never affect the vc-commit function I use.  And
        should they come to be /not/ optional, I guess I’d be able to
        bear with them, either.
