git-lfs integration?

Hi folks,

I wonder why git-lfs is needed to efficiently handle large files
in git. Would it be reasonable to integrate this functionality
into the native git?

Please excuse me asking. I read some pretty scary articles about
rewriting history, asking everybody to clone existing repositories
again, and strange errors if git-lfs is *not* installed. Apparently
this is a one-way street, so I didn't dare to install git-lfs yet.
