It's not that hard, either. Copy the project as it existed before the change to
  trahtrah.cxx (copies are cheap). Then switch to that branch and merge in the
second change to blahblah.cxx and commit. Voila, you now have a version with
the files in the state you desired. You can treat this as a tag by moving the
branch to a tag folder, or you can make the original copy in the tag folder
(since tags are a convention not a restriction).
