I started Aquamacs 9 years ago, and I have about 5 years worth of history in 
the branch.  I have been careful to be a good citizen in committing reasonably 
logical and documented changes that can be merged into the main branch.
No, I don’t want to lose my history.

If it weren’t for your dedicated and hard work while communicating with 
everyone here, I would find it somewhat insulting to be given this trivial 
“trash the history” solution.
