Changed title to more accurately describe the problem.

Only two nearly trivial scripts use the ABSLIBREGIT variable. I believe it will be better to remove all git-using code from libretools, remove ABSLIBREGIT and COMMITCMD variables from libretools.conf, and recommend using git directly. It's already needed for most tasks.

Documentation needs changes, I can help with that.

I'm working on doing this via a tool called `xbs`. None of it has been pushed yet though.

The only thing that still cares about abs/abslibre is createworkdir. I'd say that's good enough.
