If I clone a bare repo, I get 5.5 MB. :)

Your plan sounds sane to me.  I had hoped to get to an exhaustive history
comparison today but I've run out of time.  A cursory check looked pretty

    git log --follow runtime/core/Clownfish/String.c

Sounds good.

Do you want to open an issue and attach tgz'd repositories?  I'm willing to
help in theory, but having done this kind of work before, it's exacting and
hard to split up -- so if you've already got momentum, maybe we should all
just owe you one. (: And I can go work on a Clownfish logo. :)
