I agree with Matt.  The one thing that seems useful is having a tag to
mark the point in the piglit tree where a particular Mesa release was
tested.  The main I didn't do that on previous Mesa releases is that I

weren't upstream.  That would have made the tag be on a SHA1 that didn't

Anything beyond that feels like wasting time catering to the wrong set
