The reason I think this isn't so is that repeatedly I've seen people
post on this list for help dealing with git, and each time people say
to use Magit.

I have not done a scientific study, which would include investigating
whether the recommendation actually helped those people, and what
fraction of Emacs users think VC is just fine for using git.
I have simply supposed that the advice that was given is good advice
since the people who give it are expert Emacs users.
