I count 97 such broken tags; and I verified I can push replacement tags
(tag 68c0e85 was for FINDUTILS_4_3_5-1; if you do a fresh clone, tag
68c0e85 is now gone, and replaced by an identically-named annotated tag
6ee72b929 with my email as tagger).  I'm planning to script the
conversion of all the tags, but am trying to figure out if it is worth
back-dating the tags, and whether an unsigned annotated tag or a simpler
lightweight tag is the better thing to push in place of each tag that
gets corrected.

At any rate, I'll post the commands I used to make the conversion, once
it is complete; here's my starting point.

$ git fsck 2>&1 | sed -n 's/error in tag \([^:]*\).*/\1/p' > broken
