This looks good to me.
Please merge down.

I tested and reviewed this, and it also looks good to me.

While this looks like it doesn't break anything, and it does what
it intends to do, I am not sure if that is the best approach.
I'll look into Tcl and experiment to have an opinion.

Ok, glad that Johannes made noise then.
I am a heavy user of git-gui myself so I would feel sad if it wasn't
properly maintained. (On the other hand it "just works" -- for me)
I'd be ok to step up as a maintainer there in the long run if nobody
else steps up.
