I don't know, if git is such "notoriously obscure and alien" then how
about Boost.Build ? :)

FWIW, the problem with Windows is not git but simply "unique"

Linux and BSD and others, are also distributing Boost. It is of great
help to the users of these distributions to make certain that all of
them at least start with a consistent upstream version.
