This brings up a key issue for Python: git does not support Windows very 
well -- which makes sense, given its history with Linux kernel development.

I personally use SVN primarily form the command line on all systems, 
though Tortoise is very nice on Windows. It looks like there is indeed a 
TortoiseGit -- anyone know hoe complete/stable it is?

Anyway, the multi-platform and multiple tools support of SVN is amazing, 
and this is a big deal -- we're really better off with a system with 
good tool support on all platforms.
