I think that workflow changes could introduce some pain but those can
be left aside (t.i. kept as is for now) until people get used to git
more and, maybe, develop some new/optimized workflow.
One benefit what git would give, independently from which (main)
workflow is used, is branching, which, IMO, is quite cumbersome right
