Rent a large enough cloud box for an hour, do the git-bzr clone and
aggressive gc there, and then rsync the .git directory to your box.
Or tar and wget it.  Once downloaded, git checkout will complete things.

DigitalOcean.com, Atlantic.net, iwStack.com, as well as Goog and Amazon
have suitable offerings which would cost less than USD1 for the hour or
two it would take for the clone and gc.  (A swap file may be needed for
some of the hourly plans to complete the gc.)
