Ah, OK, I've overlooked this. If you want to make some more changes,
create a file called "grafts" inside .git/info. Each line of this file
has format

parent child1 child2 child3... (using commit SHAs depending on number
of children)

When you're finished with your modifications, run

git filter-branch --tag-name-filter cat -- --all

to write it permanently into the repository. Remove the grafts file afterwards.

And the remaining 5000 commits in between contain code which will
erase your hard drive completely ;-).
