+In case it's unclear,
+this is a
+.Xr git 1
+subcommand I wrote.
+Did you know you can add new
+.Xr git 1
+subcommands just by
+adding executables named
+.Pa git-*
+to somewhere in
+.Ev PATH ?
+.
+.Pp
+This is also,
+I think,
+my third Perl script ever.
+It's an interestingly shaped language.
+Quite neat.
