We don't have control for a lot of 3-rd parties keeping our history:
web.archive.org, CVS/SVN of projects redistributing our clipart etc., so
practically is not possible to complete delete the history.
The browsable interface of the old interface and ccHost data are outside
version control, so they don't have history, something deleted is gone
for good, only released packages may be affected and probably we don't
do a new packaged release anytime soon.
(Yep, I am against deleting the history)
What the law say? For example if a portion of the Linux kernel is found
infringing some software patents, it would be replaced ASAP, but you
think it would be deleted from the entire history of the version control?
