I've spent the day reading about Git.  I'd have no problem switching to
Git when it becomes a supported tool so don't go saying people don't want
to spend the time learning a new tool.

If you'd rather create a branch in branches rather than in whiteboards so
you can share your work go ahead.  No one is stopping you.
