I think you can remove the need for an interactive rebase and manual
editing of the commit list by using something like:

$ git rebase sha_of_old_master --onto origin/master

Where sha_of_old_master is the sha of the master branch just before this
blob-removing history editing takes place. Alternatively, I *think* that
the --fork-point option might even resolve this automatically (based on
the reflog), but I'm not entirely sure.

Also, this rebase command should also work for users that have no local
commits (as an alternative to the reset --keep Simon proposed), so this
could be a single command for everyone to use to bring their branches up
to date.
