Ah, there's the KDE person speaking... :-P

"More options can't hurt." Oh yes they can. Get over it.

Of course a well-designed full featured program can actually be easier
to use than a badly done simple one. But given the same amount of care,
the more featureful one will *always* be more complex. There is *always*
a tradeoff between simplicity and functionality.

And I for my part am not willing to compromise on Git's functionality.
