You forgot 3.

  3.  rewrite scripts so that they would require only POSIX;
      for ones that do need GNU extended coreutils to do in
      shell, find other ways, perhaps rewriting the stuff in C.

I am not looking forward to do the g- prefix in the main
Makefile.  The approach to have symlink forest under gitexecdir
(<> by Linus) is
more palatable, and I am not opposed to host a script to do so
under contrib/notgnu perhaps.
