FYI, qtquickcontrols2 right now is (git count-objects -v):
size-pack: 34347

But that's almost equivalent to the checkout size:

$ du -sc * | tail -1 
34136   total

(* does not include .git)

So a full history import MAY have negligible marginal impact over a squashed 
import (.git is compressed). I recommend trying both and seeing by how much 
the qtdeclarative repository increases, then deciding whether "git blame" and 
"git log" working out of the box without a "git replace" is worth the extra
