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-send-email(1)
+=================
+v0.1, July 2005
+
+NAME
+----
+git-send-email - Send a collection of patches as emails
+
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'git-send-email' [options] <file|directory> [... file|directory]
+
+
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+Takes the patches given on the command line and emails them out.
+
+The header of the email is configurable by command line options. If not
+specified on the command line, the user will be prompted with a ReadLine
+enabled interface to provide the necessary information.
+
+The options available are:
+
+ --to
+ Specify the primary recipient of the emails generated.
+ Generally, this will be the upstream maintainer of the
+ project involved.
+
+ --from
+ Specify the sender of the emails. This will default to
+ the value GIT_COMMITTER_IDENT, as returned by "git-var -l".
+ The user will still be prompted to confirm this entry.
+
+ --compose
+ Use \$EDITOR to edit an introductory message for the
+ patch series.
+
+ --subject
+ Specify the initial subject of the email thread.
+ Only necessary if --compose is also set. If --compose
+ is not set, this will be prompted for.
+
+ --in-reply-to
+ Specify the contents of the first In-Reply-To header.
+ Subsequent emails will refer to the previous email
+ instead of this if --chain-reply-to is set (the default)
+ Only necessary if --compose is also set. If --compose
+ is not set, this will be prompted for.
+
+ --chain-reply-to, --no-chain-reply-to
+ If this is set, each email will be sent as a reply to the previous
+ email sent. If disabled with "--no-chain-reply-to", all emails after
+ the first will be sent as replies to the first email sent. When using
+ this, it is recommended that the first file given be an overview of the
+ entire patch series.
+ Default is --chain-reply-to
+
+ --smtp-server
+ If set, specifies the outgoing SMTP server to use. Defaults to
+ localhost.
