Awesome.  Thank you.

While we're on the topic, has anyone used tailor (or something else) to
migrate history from mtn to git?  Any recommendations or caveats?  After 20-30
minutes of Googling, it appears that tailor is the only game in town.  It
should work, but it's new, and I'm feeling some FUD.

If no one's tried it, I'll do it myself and report back, probably next week.
