  I basically agree on all three points - I will try to submit a patch
to implement get_object() purely in reasonably soon, and will see
about introducing some actually designed repository division abstraction
when I get some time. I hope to see Git.xs come back again in few
months, but for now I have to concur that we should go back to the
drawing board.
