sorry i'm not sure follow... what's wrong with not just reverting each
commit that was bad (how many are there that doing a force reset sounds
more appealing?). what do you mean coupled, also? as in there's bit in your
commits that want to keep but revert the majority of it? 'git rebase -i'
will allow you to edit individual commits where you can pull out the stuff
you want to keep and revert the reset of it.

nuking the history seems like such a last resort i'm struggling to see how
it could be beneficial over spending a bit more time sorting out the tree..
