Until a topic hits 'next', you solely own it and it is mostly up to
you how to go about improving it.  My preference would be much less
relevant than what the end result would require, i.e....

... if we take Peff's approach, then rerolling the whole thing would
be the only approach that makes sense---incremental update would
make the resulting history less readable.  Between two approaches I
do not have a strong preference either way---it's a choice that can
be made between you and Peff.
