That's a possibility. I kind of wanted basic functionality to work
even when git is not present though, for cases where e.g. a tarball is
used, or a rsync/scp of the checkout onto a test machine.

My compromise of "build asdf-tools while you know you have a stable
asdf" seemed good to me, but admittedly it's a cognitive burden on
other maintainers, too.
