[RESEND][PATCH] Script for automated historical Git tree grafting

From: Petr Baudis
Date: Sun Sep 24 2006 - 14:06:08 EST

This script enables Git users to easily graft the historical Git tree
(Bitkeeper history import) to the current history. It will also record
the appropriate tags in your refs tree as suggested by Marcel Holtmann.

Signed-off-by: Petr Baudis <pasky@xxxxxxx>

Yet another resend, this time with actual difference! :-)

I have pondered adding support for "local grafting" suggested by
Marcel Holtmann but setting up the tags properly would be impossible
in that case and overally you are much better off just setting manually
alternates and the single line in grafts file.
