Yes, I guess Zeeshan was pointing out that with Git you can clean the
typo up *without* having the "oops, typo" as a separate commit, thus
making it possible to for example autogenerate the Changelog from git
log and not having to clean hundreds of irrelevant messages from it.

(not that this either would solve the original issue)
