Add git support to mix new as argument.

With the intention of a better experience for users starting a project I think adding git support out of the box could improve the mix new command. 

It could work like this:

$ mix new PATH --git 

And the behavior would be equivalent to:

$ mix new PATH
$ cd PATH
$ git init


And that is already a common use case for someone starting a new project. 

If being git specific is an issue, could be just --vcs.

In my career I've never been in position to run `git init`, and now you want to make it completely impossible :)

Haha, I see, you still have the chance tho! 

Keep in mind that nowadays mix.new already adds a .gitignore file. So I think it is natural to just start the git repo already.

If it's an optional and not default behaviour, I don't see why not.
