It is not difficult, as long as you don't ask too much of it.

It may be impossible to make DWIM serve a sophisticated user whose use
of Git follows no simple pattern.  However, it is not hard to make
DWIM useful when a user is using Git in RCS fashion.

If a given user uses Git in RCS fashion _most of the time_, then the
DWIM would still serve _most of the time_, which is quite useful.
