Richard wasn't in grave trouble.  He panicked when confronted with
unfamiliar output from the application.  It seems that up until the
last pull, his workflow was well-aligned with typical git workflows
(although it wasn't doing what he thought it was doing because he was
unaware that installing changes required a push).  So he was pretty
much committed up at that point, and therefore his changes were safe
against anything short of rm -rf.  The eventual resolution also turned
out to require only a few simple commands, it seems.

It was his attempts to teach the fishermen to fish before getting his
dinner cooked for him that triggered this thread.
