    and you can get even lower than the 260MB by downloading a shallow clone
    of v2.6.23 and then populating the git tree from tht point on. (see the
    --depth parameter of git-clone) [because most of the time you want to
    bisect back to the last stable release, not back to 2 years of git
    history.]
