Uh, safer?  The problem is that one changes the historic state of the
files: checking out an old version with the same tags as previously
will suddenly give a different result.

Of course this can be a problem in certain situations, but you _want_
exactly this to happen.  So I don't see how letting Savannah do this
by somehow fiddling with the files is going to make this safer.
Sounds more like a way of passing the buck.  If you _want_ to have the
job done, I don't see how Savannah can do it any safer than you.

If, on the other hand, you rather want someone with more experience to
have a chance to talk you out of it, the Savannah hackers might be a
good choice.
