"Perforce would happily obliterate anything.  :) "

Please, I can't reiterate enough how important it is to keep this in mind.
Never, ever run 'p4 obliterate -y' without running it without the
'-y' first, then check your work line by line before you pull that

And have backups. Lots of backups.

Obliterate is extremely destructive.

And I wouldn't bother rebuilding the whole server. It's easy enough to,
say, 'p4 obliterate //some/file.txt#1,#3' do just ditch the first three
revisions. No problem there.
