Hm, that doesn't work right now. Both:
git fetch rsync:// tag v2.6.12.1
git fetch tag rsync:// v2.6.12.1

die. Or am I just trying to take a point you were making about not
pulling all tags (which I can live with, just was not aware it was this
way, and I agree that it does offer up a lot of possiblities of me using
local tags in the future), and taking it literally?
