I'm open to the idea of reorganizing the git repository and if you'd
like to take the lead on that to get it set up the way you see best, I'm
definitely open to it. When I checked out the svn repo I only got one
set of tags and no detailed history. At the moment, I don't want to mess
with the organization of the source code more than I have already.
