[PATCH] Make running git under other debugger-like programs easy

This allows us to run git, when using the script from bin-wrappers, under
other programs.  A few examples:
   GIT_WRAPPER=nemiver git $ARGS
   GIT_WRAPPER="valgrind --tool=memcheck --track-origins=yes" git $ARGS

Yes, we already have GIT_TEST_GDB (which could potentially be replaced
with GIT_WRAPPER="gdb --args"), and a bunch of options for running
a testcase or multiple testcases under valgrind, but I find the extra
flexibility useful.
