Isn't that an overreaction? I don't think it would matter *that* much if
things not on HEAD were corrupted, particularly since webwml isn't a
repository where people are liable to check out old tags and try to run
them. In this particular case, I think it's clearly better to have
history that may be corrupt in places than no history at all.
