  The update worked for me, thanks.
  I ran this on the repo that was giving me fits last summer, and it stayed consistent up until just after the point where there was an octopus fixup merge.  I suspect the logic in that part of convert is too loose (i.e. it should be dropping files in the fixup merge that were already in the first merge if there weren't changes in the 3rd branch), but wasn't able to write a simple test.  (The original repo was in bzr, converted to hg, and then I had to reconvert to lfs.)  I've been swamped at work, so I don't have time to dig into it.  But no sense in holding this up, as there doesn't seem to be a regression here.
  Do you think there are other hash preserving things that can be added?  (Not asking you to do that.)  Or should we save this config name for such functionality?  I don't have any better name ideas, and don't have a problem adding more to this config option.
