Add first cut at "git protocol" connect logic.
Useful for pulling stuff off a dedicated server. Instead of connecting with ssh or just starting a local pipeline, we connect over TCP to the other side and try to see if there's a git server listening. Of course, since I haven't written the git server yet, that will never happen. But the server really just needs to listen on a port, and execute a "git-upload-pack" when somebody connects. (It should read one packet-line, which should be of the format "git-upload-pack directoryname\n" and eventually we migth have other commands the server might accept).
