This doesn't really deal with the issue of getting cruft you don't
want into the repository at all. If someone commits a bunch of
huge files (or content that could incite a lawsuit for that matter)
to a tag you can delete it so you don't see it in a HEAD view of
the repository, but the content is still taking space in the
repository and you can see it at the revision or time views when
it was there.
