I've now fixed this (with an assist from Matthew). If you look at that
commit again, it should reference an "original commit" that you can
find in `plt/racket`.

Furthermore, I've renamed the repository with the history. It's now here:

It has the original commit for everything that ends up in a split. It
also has some instructions on how to see the history including all the
original commits.

Thanks for noticing the error.
