Actually it is already possible in EGit to checkout an arbitrary commit for the whole repository. You can do that from the History View on any commit from the context menu, using the "Commit" action. The result is that you get a so-called detached head: You have the content of the files from the selected commit in your workspace, but you have not changed your branch (as it is the case if you do a "Reset"). You are not on a branch anymore, however, you can create a new one to start developing from there.
