restless-git: Easy Git repository serialization

[ git, gpl, library, serialization ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package defines a simple way to serialize state as a nested file hierarchy saved in a Git repository. It is still quite inflexible, and rather slow because it repeatedly invokes Git's plumbing commands. It used to be implemented with libgit2, but I found it desirable to avoid FFI. Any way to make it faster without FFI would be great.
