This is only tangentially related to what you're doing, but I've long
wanted to add a commit.verbose config option to emulate `git commit
--verbose`, and furthermore to show the patch in rebase under "reword",
There's been so many times when I start editing the todo list, and
reword this or that, only to forget (because I don't have good commit
messages yet) what the patch is even about, and then switch to a
terminal, "git show" etc.
I'm just mentioning that here because if and when we have such a
feature, I think the --show-patch option is going to be very confusing,
people might want to enable this thing I'm talking about, but find that
--show-patch is something else entirely.
I don't know a good solution to that, just putting that out there.
