Teach the "git" command to handle some commands internally
This is another patch in the "prepare to do more in C" series, where the git wrapper command is taught about the notion of handling some functionality internally. Right now, the only internal commands are "version" and "help", but the point being that we can now easily extend it to handle some of the trivial scripts internally. Things like "git log" and "git diff" wouldn't need separate external scripts any more. This also implies that to support the old "git-log" and "git-diff" syntax, the "git" wrapper now automatically looks at the name it was executed as, and if it is "git-xxxx", it will assume that it is to internally do what "git xxxx" would do. In other words, you can (once you implement an internal command) soft- or hard-link that command to the "git" wrapper command, and it will do the right thing, whether you use the "git xxxx" or the "git-xxxx" format. There's one other change: the search order for external programs is modified slightly, so that the first entry remains GIT_EXEC_DIR, but the second entry is the same directory as the git wrapper itself was executed out of - if we can figure it out from argv[0], of course.
