Thanks, i'll have a look at changing it. I use typedef mainly for
ergonomics, but now that the code is written, I can introduce more

Transactions have to interface with the file system. I imagine that
different libraries (libgit vs. cgit) would have different primitives

agnostic of libgit2 vs. cgit?
