Well, let me recapitulate:
If you have a directory-tree <top-most-directory> version-managed by Git then only
<top-most-directory> has a subdir .git but all other subdirs containing git-managed sourc-files not, right?
If yes, then the mechanism needed by ecb-vc-dir-managed-by-GIT is obvious:
1. check if vc-git is available (locate-library ...)
2. Check for .git subdir in the called directory
2.1. If yes, return 'GIT
2.2. If no then check if we are already in the root-dir:
2.2.1 If yes, return nil because then the called dir is not git-managed
2.2.2 If no then go one parent-dir upward and run ecb-vc-dir-managed-by-GIT with that parent-dir recursively
Do not bother with performance-issues with this test, because ECB caches the checked value after first time...
Tell me if you are unable to program this with elisp - then i will see if i can do it for you...

Awesome! Thanks a lot! It works! Well, partially...
I've added (ecb-vc-dir-managed-by-GIT . ecb-vc-state) to `ecb-vc-supported-backends'
And defined the following method:
(defun ecb-vc-dir-managed-by-GIT (directory)
"Return 'GIT if DIRECTORY is managed by GIT. nil if not."
(and (ecb-file-exists-p (concat directory "/.git/"))
With these additions it shows status icons for the files that are in the root directory of the Git working
directory but not for the files that are in sub-directories. I think it's because that Git has only has one
.git directory in the root, unlike SVN which has a .svn dir in each directory.
Unfortunately, I'm not a lisp pro and don't know how to tell ecb-vc-dir-managed-by-GIT to process
sub-directories. Any clue?
