Stopping the message there makes it sound like a polite way to say
"a generic tool to allow you doing it on anything, not limited to
Git, is already available, and a solution specific to Git is
unwanted."

I wanted to follow up with something that says "The 'parallel' tool
works in the meantime, but here are examples of very useful things
that we would not be able to live without that 'parallel' wouldn't
let us do, and we need a Git specific solution to obtain that", but
I am coming up with empty, so perhaps indeed we do not want a Git
specific solution ;-)
