I'd guess that mainly because when designing any software, you have to
decide whether you want to give people basic-yet-useful tool that they may
combine into some specific way using scripting, or do you want to build
the swiss army knife of source control with thousands of commands and
options that nobody will ever be able to learn.

P.s. I do realize that this counts as needlessly extending a finished
thread, so why don't I just mention Nazis and kill it. :)
