Fantastic! I love branched getting cleaned up before pushed.

And yes, "git rebase -i" is a fabulously useful tool. In my experience,
it lets me do everything I've ever wanted from something like stacked
git or mercurial queues, etc. but without having to learn a dozen new
commands and juggle any new concepts. And it's nicely self-documenting
too. It's a rare gem inside git certainly.

These sound like great plans. We'll have 1.9 open and ready for this to
land on master very soon.

Well done!
