I'll revert them.  Hm, what's the right bzr command for doing so?
Naively, I'd do something like

  $ bzr diff -r313..311 > backout.patch
  $ bzr diff -r315..314 >> backout.patch
  $ patch -p0 <backout.patch
  $ bzr (add|rm) ...
  $ bzr commit

but I guess there's something better, right?

That's a good idea.  In the future, I'll only touch the version when I'm
really sure the package works.
