Not worse but hard because long-lived. Most devs probably have smaller 
branches that they rebased regularly. But I think that providing a 
glimpse of solution for cases like yours is better than saying "tough 
luck discard your meaningful history"; that would not be a welcoming way 
to switch to git for the official repository.

That's not that long in fact, but I'm accustomed to the tools. What can 
be long is if you try to cleanup history while you're at it.

By the way, the howto has been updated with better cleaning up (wasn't 
totally up-to-date with latest cleanups introduced by Campbell, so it 
could leave some files behind which means an unwarranted differential 
between your branch and master). People using it might want to fetch 
that anew.
