I'm not against a single git as such, just that in practice it demands
much more upfront agreement, and is essentially more centralized with
the disadvantages that brings. Git makes it cheap to create and manage
multiple gits (and in practice we've shown this to be cheap and
accurate). So I'd like to know what exactly keeps people asking for a
single repository. (Multiple branches are IMO more work, not less
work, to understand than one git per minor version).

(And I've not seen a single real use case for "unified history").
