Won't this also export child (or maybe parent) branches that weren't
mentioned? For example:

$ git branch one
$ echo foo > content
$ git commit -m two
$ git fast-export one
$ git fast-export two

I suspect that one of those will export both one and two. If not, this
seems like a great solution to the fast-export problem.
