No! It's absolutely not necessary to break the old links.

If apache/sling is based on the "old" repo, and you are only adding new stuff on the "master"
branch (which is new, as it was never used in the subversion based Sling), you don't have
any conflicts.

You can have your cake and eat it too in this case - that's what I am trying to say all the
time :D It's just a matter of working with infra to copy things around and replace the github
repo accordingly.
