We might:
 1. Let it lie, alongside other dead branches like branch-0.1, etc.
 2. Create a directory for dead branches and move all of the dead
branches there.
 3. Remove all dead branches.

I'd suggest we do (1) for now, and separately address the issue of dead
branches.

While removed branches are still retrievable they're harder to find and
removing them doesn't save space.  So if we find that the branches
directory is too cluttered then an archive directory might be useful.
I've seen some other projects do that, while many don't seem to bother.
