If you do not want to export all the unix fileutils commands comming
with msys, the msys installation will wrap the git.exe command in
git.cmd, and put it in a seperated directory.

here's the test from eshell:

    $ which git
    $ time git status
    0.156 secs

If you invoke M-x magit-status. It takes about 3 seconds to update the
status. I don't why :(.

Magit is really faster on Linux. I tested it in my virtual machine
(Debian 6.0) on the same repo(shared by virtual box shared
directory). It takes less than 1 second to show the repo status.
