We're going to have lots of branches and merges.

In terms of repo size, we were going to be slicing the history into two
- fresh start
The 'fresh start' is what new commits will go on top of, and ranges
40-120MB depending on what git window compression is used.
The historical is ~1.2GB, and if you want a continuous history, you just
use graft to merge the two.
