Not so much scaring, but to avoid rushed migrations.

Current SVN-aware handling (downstream infra, bisects) deal better
with sequential numbers, and they may take some time to migrate to
fill Git solution.

We should move all upstream infrastructure, but we can't dictate on
the downstream pace (or it would never happen).
