Wow, I'd heard about south and noticed you were using it, but I had no
idea what it did, awesome stuff...

Another one of git's nice features, it was interesting to work with
"git rebase -i", I did have to "git push --force" afterwards, though, so
I don't exactly know how that will affect repositories that have been
