What is the implication of this addition? I guess it is not just for the
fun of it. Does it mean that all POSIX command line tools invoked by Git
including a POSIX shell are now routed through busybox instead of the
MSYS2 variant?

As I wrote a little later:

* Git for Windows releases now also include an experimental [BusyBox-based
   MinGit](https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/wiki/MinGit#experimental-busybox-based-mingit).

Thanks for the clue. It's an interesting concept. I would be interested in replacing my old MSYS environment by BusyBox. At best, it would be just a matter of replacing sh.exe.
