The initial clone through the remote helper will give you exactly
that. The only thing you need to do is to run 'git gc' afterwards, since
it will probably be huge.

Same here, and git's bzr remote helper was the only tool that could
convert the CEDET repository. It is also able to convert the whole Emacs
repository, so I'm confident it will work for you.
