Indeed, as I take a look at the code for the first time in...

$ git log
fatal: not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git

oof, it's so old it's in mercurial..

As I take a look at the code for the first time in about 9 years,
I immediately notice that it doesn't _exit() after a failed execvp()
and it uses the contents of a buffer after read() fails.

So again, a word of caution.
