IOWs, I am experimenting with something like:

git filter-branch -f -d /tmp/moodle-$RANDOM --prune-empty
--index-filter "git ls-files -z | grep -zZ -v '${dirpath}'  | xargs -0
--no-run-if-empty -n100 git rm --quiet --cached --ignore-unmatch "
^v2.1.0 $branches
git filter-branch -f --prune-empty --subdirectory-filter ${dirpath}
^v2.1.0 $branches
git filter-branch -f --commit-filter
"~/src/git-filter-branch-tools/remove-pointless-commit.rb \"\$@\""
^v2.1.0 $branches

perhaps the docs for filter-branch imply, to me at least, that it's a
DWIM tool. I am surprised at having to roll my own on something that
is fairly popular.
