Yes, I stumbled across that bit, when I was just done writing all the separate

Indeed (also some have underscores instead of dots, some are called release-
rkward-x.y.z, others just release-x.y.z), and so I just left the conversion 
script as is (except for adjusting the tag names).

I'm glad to see all that inconsistency was so easy to fix in the conversion. 
The drawback is that this makes it so much more obvious, that I've done a 
rather lousy job at tagging releases (so many tags missing) ;-).

I ran
  git repack -a -d -f --window=250 --depth=250
and that got the size down from some 80+ MiB to just under 10 MiB (almost 
insultingly small ;-)).

Thanks for your feedback! I'll give this another day or two, then, for 
everybody to look at, then request moving it.
