I'd also be happy to throw money into this endeavor (Monte - reach out 
to me and let's talk), but...

1. I really think this needs to be integrated as an out-of-the-box 
experience into the IDE's menu, and not as a third-party add-on. Even as 
a plugin, it needs to be officially sanctioned by the mothership or it 
won't have any traction out in the real world. There is no development 
tool I use today that doesn't have git (and github) integration built in 
to an IDE and/or doesn't use a textfile format for all files so that git 
archives everything effortlessly.

2. If this continues to be developed as a third-party plugin and there's 
a parallel effort to develop version control by the team, then this 
whole thing is counter-productive, no matter how good the end product 
turns out to be.
