Merging Anonymous Lead with non-anonymous record

Hello,

I have a lead which was sync'ed from salesforce (let's call him John Q).  He has filled in a non-marketo form on my web site, so I know exactly who he is, and where he was at 8:00 AM last Wednesday.  

I have an anonymous lead in marketo (we'll just call it X).  X has the 33 pages that John Q visited during his 8:00 AM jaunt, but, of course, doesn't know who X is, because no marketo form has been filled out.

I want to get these two leads (X and John Q) merged into one lead, so that I have the 33 web pages from X attributed properly to John Q.

There was an idea posted to simply add the email to X that matches, then run a de-dup list, pick the two leads, and merge them.  

This does not work, I THINK because the anonymous leads won't show up in the smart list, even if they fit the bill.

Any ideas on how I can either:
A) Merge these leads another way
B) Turn "Is Anonymous" to False for X

Thanks,
C
