Indeed, StGIT has grown quite a lot (it now has ~45 commands) and it
probably feels better as a tool on its own. However, I think it would
be good for git to get such functionality (and it could even share
some ideas StGIT and guilt). If this functionality will get fully
integrated in git, StGIT could use it directly rather than the
low-level git commands.

An example of additional functionality that might stay outside of git
(at least for a while): since basic patch management support is pretty
much complete in StGIT, a feature we are thinking about adding is
better support for patch sharing between developers (or
repositories/branches). This should allow easier cloning and merging
with branches that have a volatile history at the top.
