Yes please.  I will rewind it again once I have, as you suggest, fixed
my "demo test" not to needlessly fiddle with '/dev/full'.

I fear that Savannah forbid such simple for of non-fast-forward pushes.
Here is what you can do to still force the rewind:

  $ git branch -m experimental/preproc x
  $ git push origin :experimental/preproc
  $ git branch -m x experimental/preproc
  $ git push origin experimental/preproc
