Thank you.

I won't be able to accurately mimic the seven missing changes as most
of them were for binary files (project documentation and some DLLs).

Instead, is there a way to simply say "All future revisions that
depend upon these seven revisions are dead/null" so I can piece the
repo back together with just that minor loss?
