Version control is all about history.  While it does seem quite unlikely that 
these tags and branches would ever be referenced in the future, it doesn't 
hurt to keep them.  And since the repository keeps a history of everything, 
our lists of tags and branches won't be very clean (meaning: old and unused 
ones will still be there) but that's ok.  If we start removing stuff from the 
repository, it loses it's integrity.
