This is academic now as Julian is making great progress with his shelve
tech that's built in to Subversion and idiomatic, but there are MIT
licensed versions of Git:

    https://github.com/go-gitea/git/blob/master/LICENSE (MIT)

You could link that in instead of LibGit2 (GPL) for storage and
dissemination of patch sets.

Sure, a Go run-time library is not as bytespace/ram/CPU efficient as C or
Rust, but it's closer by a mile than Java or Python (for example).
