Big tool rename.
As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch. The primary differences since 0.99.6 are: (1) git-*-script are no more. The commands installed do not have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if something is implemented as a shell script or not. (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with 'index' if that is what they mean. There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward compatibility support is expected to be removed in the near future.

+git-reset - Reset current HEAD to the specified state.
+'git-reset' [--mixed | --soft | --hard] [<commit-ish>]
+Sets the current head to the specified commit and optionally resets the
+index and working tree to match.
+ Like --soft but reports what has not been updated. This is the
+ default action.
+ Does not touch the index file nor the working tree at all, but
+ requires them in a good order.
+ Matches the working tree and index to that of the tree being
+ switched to.
+ Commit to make the current HEAD.
