It has been in the plans all along to hide most/all of git behind fedpkg
calls, even more than cvs was hidden.  I just wanted to make the point
that very very little of CVS was hidden.  The only added potentially
sticky point is how to get from the rawhide view of content to say the
F-12 view.  But as I said, that'll be hidden behind fedpkg for those
that don't want to use git directly.
