i explicitly said before, there would be two repos:
1. main working repo, starts with ONLY initial commit. 40MB pack.
2. historical. read-only, you graft it to history to use.
BOTH of these would have preferred download via git-bundle over
HTTP/rsync. historical would NOT be available via clone due to cputime
please look up git-bundle before suggesting things like tarballs of
