The relevant PEP is http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0374/
To some Pythonic eyes, the git command syntax in the examples given is 
less graceful.

Another thing mentioned in the py-dev thread.  Git apparently allows 
'changing history' by changing the underlying directed acyclic graph. 
Some like that, some do not.  (I do not completely understand this, but 
you asked...)
