Thanks! This is just the pointer I needed. One thing to keep in mind
is that one must use the <sha> hash of the commit BEFORE the one that
changed the bit you're interested in rolling back.
Back under CVS, I just used:
$ cvs update -D "<datespec>" foo
to roll back to just a minute or so before the earliest change in the
affected group of files. I suppose using:
git log --before foo --after bar
would have shown me the relevant commit hash(es), but it wasn't clear how
to give the datespecs.
