I was going to mention the merge too - I think that the resulting leaf
would be the same, but the tree would not have been re-arranged.

<soapbox> You **do not** change history. The principle is the same as in
accounting, where you should not erase an erroneous entry, you should
reverse it out.</soapbox>

But then I tend to think in terms of Software Configuration Management,
not source control.
