I think Joey is a vim user, so I doubt he's said anything about an Emacs
program choosing to call "git annex get" :)

But yeah, that's a good point about which parts of Org should support or
care about annexed files.  IMO export and nearly all parts of Org should
not.  I see org-attach as an exception because it is focused on managing
external files and already has some support for doing so with git and
git-annex.  (I think it would be fine for org-attach to support other
ways of storing files, should someone care to implement it.)  But I
don't actually use org-attach, so I may be off the mark here.
