It's not important right now since the ExternalLibraries won't be
transitioning yet, but while I think of it, it would be possible to
maintain the history rather than creating the repository from scratch. This
could be done using git filter-branch to remove the tarballs from the
history and put them in a submodule instead. Checking out the out the thorn
would then not get all the tarballs by default. Of course, if a tarball is
needed then the entire history would have to be downloaded. However, if the
ExternalLibraries eventually move to a system where the tarball is not
included but instead fetched on demand, then the large history-of-tarballs
repository would only have to be fetched when checking out an old version
of the external library.
