No, my goal was to remove an old temporary branch that contains mostly
invalid code that should never be used.  It's essentially a development
branch that never went anywhere.  Some of the code it contained was merged
into another branch and development continued from there.  The rest is
throw-away code.  The branch doesn't even have any useful history in it, so
it's just wasting space.  However, since there were only a few commits ever
made to it, most of which were invalid anyway, it's not even wasting all
that much space.  So just deleting the branch tag will be enough to prevent
it from being used accidentally, which is all I really wanted.
