I really don't think that this is a good way to manage our project -
dueling commits and reverts.  Once something is discussed and decided
upon, one person shouldn't just unilaterally undo it.  If something
needs changing, it should be discussed.  Everyone overwriting everyone
else's changes just leads to chaos.
