It is true that we can forget the old name (we probably shouldn't be
doing that though), but the problem comes with defining the files for
the new tag. It sounds like you already have a branch whose HEAD is
always the tagged release. In this case we don't necessarily have
that. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
