For something like that you could use git-filter-branch and probably
the equivalent in bzr (there *is* an equivalent, but I think it
requires converting to fastimport format to use).  To avoid the rebase
issue, you'd maybe merge the resulting branch rather than rebase.

git-filter-branch is very fast, although bzr's equivalent would not be
if I'm correct about converting to fastimport format.  But it could
probably be made to be fast.
