        $gs->set( ['config', 'wiki.txt'], { hash_ref => 1 } );
        $gs->commit();
        $gs->set( 'yyy/xxx.log', 'Log me' );
        $gs->discard();
        
    # later or in another pl
        my $val = $gs->get( 'user/obj.txt' ); # $val is the same as $obj
        my $val = $gs->get( 'config/wiki.txt' ); # $val is { hashref => 1 } );
        my $val = $gs->get( ['yyy', 'xxx.log' ] ); # $val is undef since discard

        git init
        # use GitStore->new('/path/to/this/sandbox')
        # set something
        git checkout
        
    # follows are for remote git url
        git remote add origin git@github.com:fayland/sandbox2.git
        git push origin master
        # do more GitStore->new('/path/to/this/sandbox') later
