FYI, git-annex gained the ability to use a bup remote. This will solve
all problems in this regard if used correctly and will even give you
indefinite and full history.

As an aside, please look here [1] for a current discussion on how to
store metadata in git, enabling git-annex to do so, enabling any FUSE
front-ends to act more in line with normal file systems. Smudge
filters were mentioned so this must be good ;)
