Well, for some definitions of 'altering history'. We certainly let you
remove recent revisions. darcs lets you remove 3 commits-ago without
removing the last 2 commits. And *that* we don't support.
So in bzr, if you have commits:
a => b => c => d
You can always go back to a, b, c, or d, but you can't remove 'c'
without also removing d.
