Not that simple, because there have been many changes interspersed with 
(conflict-laden) merges from upstream, plus I have a number of topic branches. 

What I have done now is to extract alignment information from the old and new 
git branches for the year 2009, and I have a script that produces "grafts" to 
map all my merges to the new upstream branch to pretend that that's how they 

I can, later, rewrite everything to reflect the new state of affairs.

I've described the method here in case anyone can make use of it:
