I found vcsh today while looking for similar projects to mine[1] that
exploited GIT_DIR to do overlaid git repos. It seems that vcsh and
multigit are quite similar although they started out from trying to
solve different problems. Multigit started from a
git-based-package-manager angle (for Lua modules) while vcsh started
from a git-based-home-directory-manager angle. You can see that
difference in flavor in the command line options and features,
although many options are strikingly similar. Anyway it is nice to see
that other people "get it". It's quite a powerful and low-tech way to
combine modularity and change control.

Happy coding,
