I understand that of late shallow clones have improved in various ways
I just tried to clone emacs

Shallow emacs 262M
Full clone 441M

In particular
shallow emacs' .git 38M
Full emacs' .git 228M

Most important it was some 2 hours with full and less than ½ hr with

However emacs devs prefer people to do a full clone

I was wondering if there is/are have-the-cake-and-eat-it options. eg
1. Clone from a certain recentish tag to now
2. Change from a depth --1 to a depth --25 later
3. etc

Note: Emacs is probably extreme in having a 40 year history(!)
