I just came across a tool that may solve my previous concerns about 
losing history when moving from an overlay to the main tree: 
git-stitch-repo 
<http://search.cpan.org/~book/Git-FastExport-0.07/script/git-stitch-repo>. 
It's not part of the main git distribution, it's a standalone script.

Using it is described in more detail in a blog post by Brandon Philips 
<http://ifup.org/2009/02/07/the-right-tool-for-the-job-git-stitch-repo>.
