Note (and I should have said this at first), doing it this way gives you
the opportunity to combine a few changes if you want.

Use git-format-patch-script to pull out what you want, delete the diff
from the bottom of the file, manually diff what you need using
git-diff-script, and stick that back at the end of the file
git-format-patch-script created.

This seems to be the easiest way to clean up your change history.
