Teach filter-branch about subdirectory filtering
With git-filter-branch --subdirectory-filter <subdirectory> you can get at the history, as seen by a certain subdirectory. The history of the rewritten branch will only contain commits that touched that subdirectory, and the subdirectory will be rewritten to be the new project root.
