Bulk revert of unintended Develop steps

I did something really dumb! I was adjusting a single photo, with 3 distinct steps, in the Develop module, but I accidentally auto-synched to 10,521 other photos (my 5 star collection). One by one, I can open the history pane and click "clear history above this step" but how do I do that for the other 10,520 photos in bulk?

If it is any help, I had exported each and every one of the photos before I took these steps. So, alternatively, is there are way of reverting the catalog to its condition at the time of the export?

Sadly, I did not back up the catalog prior to or subsequent to the export. Dumb dumb dumb.

I did the same thing several months ago and just discovered the error recently, so I don't have a catalog backup to use.  Can anyone think of a way to bulk undo the latest edit?

There's no easy way - it's using a backup, or stepping back in History one-by-one. Do you know what that last mistaken edit was?

Thanks, John.  Looks like I'm in for many hours of "option-click" on the history panel.
