Maybe so.  But it doesn't need to do everything Magit does.  It only
needs to be good enough to make git easy to use in Emacs.

Maybe so.  But if Emacs contains something that is at least adequate,
most users will find it from the manual and other Emacs distro

I am all in favor of that.  That is the best possible outcome.

However, developing something else should be plan B
