It came up in pkg/54365, and has been brought up by confused people on
IRC various times. Actually, I started this thread because people were
arguing about it on IRC and I wanted to propose something productive.

I remember it confusing me as a new user. FreeBSD, for example, has a
separate git-gui package, and 'git' is git-without-GUI. Now that I
know how things work, I'm happy to install git-base and git-docs,
but I would like to clarify things for new users.
