Would initiating a repo with a empty root commit, tag it with 'base' then

No... my question was confused from the beginning.  With such large files
I _shouldn't_ have history (or grafts), otherwise Git spends a lot of CPU
time creating diffs when I look at a commit, or worse, when I try git log.
Which I discovered quickly when trying real data instead of test-data:-)

Ævar's suggestion was exactly right in that respect.  Thanks again!
