The commands are roughly divided into "plumbing" (low-level) and 
"porcelain" (higher-level). 

On that analogy, I am looking forward to someone building a 
full-featured "bathroom": A GUI that goes well beyond gitk and gitg, 
both in offering rich and complete views into a repository, but also

things, like powerful ways to see how to see how an apparently 
complicated git merge conflict can actually be pretty simple and how to 
find out.  Unfortunately the cameracritter thought we wanted to see his
