Sheesh.

It's not *supposed* to create any problems in the general sense, but yes, it
just broke --stop-on-copy types of history tracing, introduced a historical
gap (from 1295003 to 1295006), and will almost certainly be a nuisance.

This is really not the correct way to revert changes. Not only does it
cause the aforementioned issues, but in extreme cases it masks the details
of the reversions, leaving others who have been tracking those changes made
in trunk to wonder exactly what got reverted.

(Probably should have had this conversation before this commit was made.)
