I'd be almost kinda ok with not doing this. It'd obviously be
preferable, but merging is such a pain anyway that I don't think it'd
be terrible if we didn't do it and had a hard line in the sand.

git users probably would need to get a fresh checkout, but we could at
least sync from git.apache.org/qpid now, which is much, much cheaper
than pulling it down. I'm not sure what effect this would have on that
mirror though, if we're going to need infra to rebuild it we should
definitely give them a heads up.

We'd definitely need to check it out carefully. Which I guess argues
against it, it's quite annoying but not enough that I feel a burning
urge to put effort into it myself.
