Boost2Git does not delete branches/tags. When you delete a branch in
svn, it still exists in the history. But when you delete a branch in
git, it is truly gone. So we decided to keep all deleted branches.
As a post-processing, we delete all merged branches, ie. the result of
`git branch --merged`. Copied tags do not count as merged branches.
