This is the third try to create a git clone of the mtn repo. Now the
way the repo is created is totally different.

All the branches are cloned, the topology is exactly the same, and
this can be updated at any time.

A nice feature is that you can use mtn ids just like git ones, for
example these two are the same:
git show 397e3f # git id
git show mtn/c57d3ddd9e7431dd2a0ecd9be96ec6eee270ac09 # mtn id

You can try it from:

Size: 95M (after gc)
Time to clone: 3:43 (from github)
Time of git log: 0.933 seconds
Time of git diff: 0.032 seconds

Comments, criticisms, and any kind of feedback is welcome :)
