IIRC it cut down the final repo size ~200mb (after aggressive GC on
both tests), some branches contain full checkouts of other projects
too - eg,
assimp, swig are in branches + docs & example files in some cases too.

We can cleanup this in some cases (like removing html docs+images from
history) but it gives us more work to do too.
