Your algorithm for determining what has been cherry-picked is defective, 
as it got in-process branches of mine.  So, you all might want to verify 
soon that you don't need one of the deleted branches.

As for mine, I myself have the workspaces still of the ones that I want 
back, so no action is needed by anyone else but me.
