that might be the case.

but the point remains that the history that didn't exist along the 
merged mainline would live elsewhere (unless we'd import all branches 
and tags as well - we actually did that in qt creator, and it looks 
kinda weird and confusing).

we keep around all repos. the remote may just need an adjustment to 
point to {graveyard}/.

(speaking of which, it might be actually time to do that with qt.git, 
rather than only renaming it.)
