size of repository with many branches, vs. git

Well, I've discovered part of the problem, and it's *not* mercurial's
fault (though git somehow managed to cope with this): apparently, LyX's
trunk/branches/tags layout isn't totally standard: under branches, there
is one directory which is not itself a branch, but rather a directory
containing directories containing branches
convert identified this as just another branch, so we got a branch
called 'personal' with a manifest of 14000 files --- because it
contained multiple copies of the tree in it...
Is there any way to tell convert how to deal with this kind of situation
(where there are branches at branches/b1, branches/b2,
branches/personal/b3, branches/personal/b4, ...)? Perhaps by providing
an explicit list of the paths of the branches?
Anyhow, I will try to clean this up, and then see what the situation is;
and I'll try to provide some of the numbers that you've requested.
Meanwhile, thanks all for your help!
