+`git revert` is an inverse of `git cherry-pick`. I had a branch `raven`
+earlier and I wanted some changes from it to be standard in master with
+a replacement branch with the converse of those changes. So
+ $ git checkout master
+ $ git merge raven
+ $ git checkout -b newbranch
+ $ git revert -n [sha of the changes] <-- THIS is literally:
+ invert the commit and cherry-pick it
