It makes sense, but I do not think of any good reason why this
should be implemented as a builtin.  I'd expect it would probably
need to collect more info on the running environment than otherwise
necessary for the regular Git operation, and perhaps you'd want to
even link with libraries that are not needed for the regular Git
operation to achieve that.

Can you make it a standalone binary instead to avoid bloat of the
main "git" binary?

Thanks.
