So, we just have to make sure that we don't add any crazy workflow on Git.

That's why I like the idea of having llvm-projs as being an automated
sub-module hook-driven repo that no one uses, and let everyone else
use Git as it was intended, in a way that most GUIs can handle.

That's the workflow I'm looking for... I *really* don't want a
convoluted workflow "just because it's Git".

I'd rather use Git-SVN than have to write tons of bash scripts and
break my workflow. In that sense, we're on the exact same predicament.
GUI or not, makes no difference.
