You'll notice the pattern, if replacements are all that is listed. But if you
have many "ordinary" commits in the same branch, it seems so hard to find
those replacements.

...then one day you'll clean up that branch because you'll never going to
look at it again. And later of course you want to look at it again. So how do
you find the right peg revision, just before the deletion? What I do is to a
lottery system: pick an old peg revision and work my way up. Is there a
proper way?
