Multiply that with the number of your possible users, and you will see  
what a giant time-waste is.

Nobody is comparing git with quilt, really. Obviously you are trying  
to compare different unit types as a result of muddle thinking. It is  
not git *or* quilt, but DVCS *and* some sort of patch series and I see  
LKML and git developers constantly performing that. So, forget about  
quilt and think of the least common multiple as an abstract change  
units every can inherit and extend.
