Because it matters to the repository what's between these revision
numbers: commits are related. Why is it that you want your number back
to N? Because then you can start committing from your working copy
again? Or just 'for optical reasons'?

You can't commit from that working copy anymore, supposing that you
have files which were modified in the region that just got deleted. If
such modifications are no longer in the repository, your working copy
and repository just got out of sync...

Erik.
