Exploring the history file

I'm trying to recover some lost data by looking at the LocalHistoryStorage stuff. Long story, but we lost the project and the files in it.

We copied off the .IntelliJIdea10 directory, including the LocalHistory folder. We tried to re-create the project in the same folder with the same name and so far haven't had any luck in getting IJ to show the history for the project.

So, I'm trying to figure out how I might best use this data and support gave me the idea that the community edition is open sourced and I might try that route. I'm trying to figure out the best approach. I have tried creating an empty project and starting to add various modules from the community edition incrementally, starting with lvcs-api and lvcs-impl, but still struggling with lots of compilation errors.
