Another thing to keep in mind: it being in Python prevents it from being
distributed with Git for Windows. The Git for Windows installer already
weighs way more than it used to (it used to be under 30MB, now it is
44MB), and I am simply not willing to increase the footprint dramatically
just for one rarely used command.

If only it were written as a built-in...
