Do we need a consensus? Sometimes it's enough for the reviewer to 1)
bite their tongue or 2) fix before pushing. Often it's a matter of taste
and it is beneficial to not second-guess the patch author too much, to
not hurt their confidence.

I think we should try to avoid a situation where we have to bootstrap
Git. We do have git-minimal, which works for now. Libgit2 recently
started releasing tarballs, so that could be an option, too.

Another point for url-fetch is that Git's transition from SHA1 to SHA256
identifiers may be easy for us, or it may not be. We don't know yet.
