Right, the fact that the order of X and X-1 is reversed is another
part I missed.  Thanks.

And after I did that, would a simple "bzr revert" get me back to the
state where that backed up version was part of the tree?  I'm asking
because the section in the manual on reverse cherrypicking says that
Bazaar doesn't track cherrypicks.
