Forgive me, I'm not nearly as familiar with the system as others, but couldn't you just clone the repo on your own system, then send that command from your own bash? It isn't using Github, yes, but then again that system setup doesn't seem like it's using Github either.

I think the point of the linked story is that you can use github seamlessly to collaborate with other GH projects but you have to use your local git installation for interacting with non-gh projects.

You have to use your own local git for doing anything non-trivial.

Github does not intend to replace your CLI, it intends to augment it. Reimplementing send-email/am would be a waste of their effort toward their true goal.
