At first blush, this looks like the right solution given your problem
statement.  I believe this is actually included in the Git source under
the contrib/credential subdirectory.  We just don't build it today.
Perhaps you could submit a patch to build it?  I wonder if it would be
simpler to define a separate package that builds it from the source
you've linked above, rather than trying to build it within the (already
rather large) Git package definition.

I type my password when I invoke git-send-email, and it makes me a
little sad inside every time, so I'd love to be able to use this!
