   Don't try to teach vc.el adherents that a git way might be
   better.  No light, only heat.  Instead, use magit, and wait.

That is a fine strategy if the teachers were not to care about
vc.el and vc.el adherents, and their fate going forward.  Too,
there are vc.el semi-adherents (FTR, like myself) in the mix.
Teaching is not a tranquil tradition...

Anyway, i see the discourse not so much as "the git way" vs
"the non-git way" but more along the lines of electrolysis of
water into its constituent hydrogen and oxygen.  Perhaps the
heat[0] can be put to (thermodynamic) work, perhaps not; some
habits are hard to crack[1], and water being wet is one of its
charms[2].  :-D
