Feature request: Launch terminal from GitX

Reported by Carl | September 3rd, 2010 @ 01:51 AM | in 0.8

As of version 0.7.1, there is no way to launch the terminal from within GitX to get to the git command line.

This is needed when:
a) You need to do something that GitX can't do - like rebasing, cherry-picking, examining the reflog
b) You're working with two (or more) SCM systems (perforce and git, for example) and need to run a script or two to keep them in sync.

I would consider this feature working when there is a way to launch the terminal window so that it opens at the git repository root for the repository window that is currently active.

The launch method could be either
a) A button on the GitX toolbar
b) A keyboard shortcut - one candidate would be Apple+G, which would be consistent with git extensions' Ctrl+G keyboard shortcut on Windows.
c) A button and a keyboard shortcut.
