note that when you 'undo' a commit in this way, you're not actually
deleting history from the repository, but rather adding to it. [your
commit is still there in rX, reverted in r(X+1) ].

OTOH, when you change a log message this way, the old log message is
actually replaced with the new one, no history involved.
