Thank you for reverting.

I would have preferred to see the current git branch parked and master
rebranched from before the controversial changes (using git push
--force), then changes re-added one by one. Right now, it is hard to
tell which changes are in and which are out.

I intend to perform some git analysis to see if everything has been
properly reverted. Stay tuned.
