I don't think that's possible.  But there is code to limit the
number of lines sent out (but it might not work).  I guess ... well,
shoot.  I'd say just blast away.

That would be .... a nasty rebase.  And it would probably mess up everyone
with a checked out copy of the tree.

We can certainly put the whole history in the tree, though.  Maybe
on a branch, off of the initial revision?  And then merge it into
the master branch?
