Seriously?!  That would be **fantastic**!

I don't think it needs to be a GUI, though.  A program or script
that downloads the latest material on the master/ branch, then
produces a patch upon request.  Like:

$ git-easy get
    (produces lilypond/ with the current master/ branch)
$ cd lilypond/
$ git-easy update
    (downloads any updates)
$ vi Documentation/learning.itely
$ git-easy commit
    (produces a patch in ../ )
$ git-easy reset
    (reverts to exactly the online master/ branch)

I know that a command-line app would be a bit unfamiliar for
windows users, but I'm ok asking them to learn that much.
