Oops. That second line was supposed to be the timestamp when
the obliterate was done. So it should say "(Sat, 10 Mar 2007)"

One of the details is that the user may not want to obliterate the
changes made to all the files changed by the given revision. They
might only need to obliterate changes to a single file, which makes
it a little tricker to do a good job with the log-messages...
