Not what I want. I want a central canonical svn repository with
tagged versions of matching headers and shared libs that can be
predictably accessed with svn externals, I just don't want it to be
the same svn repository that holds the source until subversion gets
some features that make it feasible to remove things. But I'd like a
way to ensure that the tags stay precisely in parallel to the
matching source. I don't see how git would help with that part.
