If you have an upstream which does such a thing, what are the chances
that the software they're producing is actually useful? If it's useful,
it should stand on its merits and not the name. And if it's just crap,
then there probably isn't much point in adding it to the distribution.
I would assume that any such software would tend towards the 'crap' end
of the spectrum, but it's an infinite universe....
The word "git" actually has a pretty rude standard meaning.
