So I did try this out. I did a 'fitler-branch', and afterwards I am
unable to do a `git svn fetch`:

$ git svn fetch
fatal: Invalid revision range cf641cf687fc41b769f296af6e4345dd6a8a6d7d
rev-list --pretty=raw --reverse
cf641cf687fc41b769f296af6e4345dd6a8a6d7d..refs/remotes/svn/trunk --:
command returned error: 128

I have a TON of branches, so I need some small command or script that
is able to go through each branch and update the metadata to tell it
what the new (rewritten) HEAD commit on each branch is. I'm assuming
that's the problem (git svn data is referring to old SHA of each
remote tracking branch).

If there is more to it than this please let me know. Thanks so far for
everyone's help.
