The effort we're spending now (iterating on the svn-git conversion) is
to make sure the conversion will support / simplify future contrib/
software updates, and I believe that attempting to truncate the repo
will in fact make that process harder.

We're very much not aiming for perfection, and have already determined
how additional history can be grafted in later and on a per-clone
basis, should someone want "git blame" to show CSRG-era commits, for

We could perhaps skip converting branches before stable/10, although
it doesn't buy us too much - uqs@ is not spending much time.
