The reason I originally asked for it to be kept around was not because
it's hard to rebase, but because there might be references to SHA1s from
that repo floating around.

I don't think these would be very common, nor critical, but I know I
wrote a few emails that included things like "look at this commit".
Personally, my utility for the old repo is not much (if it was anything
important, I wouldn't have relied on the unofficial repo). But we should
probably give a little bit of warning for folks that might want to
rebase or translate some old notes.
