Well, I don't know how much coding it would be, but from a *very*
cursory look I would say what you need to do is model the index file
format in Smalltalk, and reproduce the update-index and checkout-index
commands.  Once you had that, you could reuse all the normal
merge/commit/etc commands from git, because those all operate on the
index and on the repository database.
