Yes; in general, you can still use -r{DATE}, it's just that the
revisions it returns may not be "correct" for various reasonable
definitions of "correct", depending on what dates you specify and how
they relate to the out-of-order commits. (It's difficult to be more
specific than that without a concrete example, of course, but I think
you get the idea.)
