A good point.  But I think that Brian's master branch matches the one in
tahoe-lafs/tahoe-lafs (once caught up, perhaps very promptly), and that
if one has a master branch that is supposed to match, the history is
actually the same.

I think that's true.  reforking does mean pull requests go to the right
