Hmm... I did see the "since" parameter and cranked it back.

It didn't seem to do what I wanted, but it's possible the bug is only
with multi-epoch archives, (I was trying to bring in LKML).

From poking at it, it looked like it did perform a "deepening" operation
using the "since" parameter after the initial clone, but then didn't use
anything older than the most-recent upstream commit for the range of
commits from which to get messages out.

But my examination of the code and behavior was very cursory, I admit.

Thanks! I clearly didn't look quite hard enough. I appreciate the
