I don't see a problem. libgit2 is intended to be an optional dependency.
People who don't like the GPL or don't trust the linking exception
promise can keep using Subversion's native repository backends.

It's not like github would ever turn around on their linking exception
promise, would they? I really doubt that.

Also, I think we should keep the discussion focused on technical matters.
