Independent of what's wrong or right in this case: You are not the first 
one to say that the changeset is too large to easily see what has 
happened. This tells us that Nathan's original edit was perhaps a bit 
large for one changeset and it would have been better to upload it in 
several chunks.

Also, my revert script (which Lar has used) needs to be changed so that 
it requires a reason to be given for revering a changeset - I'm sure Lar 
would have provided one if the script had asked him to, leading to less 
confusion about the whole issue.
