Knowing the original names (hashes) of commits can sometimes enable
post-filtering that would otherwise be difficult or impossible.  In
particular, the desire to rewrite commit messages which refer to other
prior commits (on top of whatever other filtering is being done) is
very difficult without knowing the original names of each commit.

In addition, knowing the original names (hashes) of blobs can allow
filtering by blob-id without requiring re-hashing the content of the
blob, and is thus useful as a small optimization.

Once we add original ids for both commits and blobs, we may as well
add them for tags too for completeness.  Perhaps someone will have a
use for them.

This commit teaches a new --show-original-ids option to fast-export
which will make it add a 'original-oid <hash>' line to blob, commits,
and tags.  It also teaches fast-import to parse (and ignore) such
lines.
