Yep, I think we can set this up in a reasonable way with grafts. I'm happy
to write a little shell script we can put on the wiki for git users that
would make the history look sane.

Depending on how the git mirrors work, we might even be able to get the
official git.apache.org one to work, too. If we decide to go forward with
this plan I'll talk to the relevant INFRA folks and see about that.
