I don't really understand the point of the "private namespace" anymore I
guess. Why do we have both refs/remotes/$remote and
refs/$foreign_vcs/$remote, if they are always kept in sync?

Keeping the last imported revision in a separate file would be possible,
but then we'd have information about the remote in one file plus two
refs, and I don't understand why we need to split the information in so
many places. A ref seemed the right tool to store a revision.
