OK, I've done the rewrite but I need to clean it up a bit, which I'll do
over the weekend. I've also found that I can actually squash the merges
into one with a little bit of plumbing: simply do a soft reset before
the merges, then do a 'commit-tree' and set the second parent to the
last commit from emacs-24 you have in your last merge. That seems to
work fine since all the commits in the consecutive merges are directly
related, but I'm not really comfortable with it just yet, so I'll keep
that for later...
