Thanks for the response.  lore is definitely a big factor of
consideration, but I would also like to make it easier for
others to mirror lore w/o needing CPAN.

Fwiw, CentOS 7.x does have libgit2-devel and Inline::C packaged;
so that's an option, too.

Given the announcement of Perl 7 today makes me a little
uneasy(*), I might be a bit more inclined to introduce more
functionality via Inline::C.

(*) Perl 7 will probably be less painful than the Python 3 or
    Ruby 1.9 transitions, but those are low bars.  Having "only"
    a ~decade-long support window for old Perl 5 stuff doesn't
    seem sufficient.  I guess distros and users (myself included)
    will need to do our part to keep things from breaking and
    possibly extend maintenance indefinitely.
