So should we manually correct the most glaring problems of the result
of this?  For example, the logs for commits I made on that branch
should be deleted, as there's a summary log for the merge-commit later
on that covers them all.

Perhaps we should recommend that people use the ";" trick in the log
messages they make on branches they intend to merge onto master later?
