Sorry about the late reply. Been a while since I was active on the git
ML, and my broken list search was searching for cc:me, not to:me. So I
sent my v3 in <20170310203348.675-1-avarab@xxxxxxxxx> without reading

The tag brute force script I hacked up
(https://gist.github.com/avar/45cf288ce7cdc43e7395c6cbf9a98d68) is now
at >1k iterations without finding anything. But of course it may be
broken / this may not be producible on git.git

Getting this in master first sounds good. I already have a working v4
on top of this, which is of course much faster for the --contains
combined with --no-contains case. Gotta run now, but will clean up
that patch & submit it to the list soon.
