Please do not assign yourself to the bug unless you are working on it, thanks.

Yes, that might work in some cases.
It would be advisable though, to first do the grepping and then review the result before trying to reinstall everything from it, I have a feeling things could go even worse if one is not being careful there...

Also worth noting is that any automatically-installed states will have been lost, so that's something to keep in mind as well...
