Hi, Randy,

The short answer is:  sorry, there's no way to do this.

The situation here is much like footprints in the sand on the beach: 
if Bob's footprints get crossed and thus obliterated by Wendy's later 
footsteps, there's no way that one can recover Bob's earlier 

And if even if one had a way of remembering exactly where Bob's 
footprints had been, it would not do to "erase" them, because that 
would compromise the appearance of the footprints later put down by
