As far as I know, "git bisect" is currently being converted from shell
to C by Miriam Rubio for Outreachy project [3], so I am not sure if it
would be feasible as GSoC 2020 project.

I'm not sure if it would be possible and if it would make sense to
convert "git instaweb" and/or it's helper script "git web--browse" from
shell to C.

I think trying to convert either "git stash" or "git submodule" to C
would make more sense.
