How about using long names?

        git commit --reuse-message <sha1>

looks a lot more intuitively understandable to me than something like "-c"

Most of us don't use 300bps terminals any more, so typing a few extra 
characters is probably ok.

Now, to make things be backwards-compatible, it should be easy enough to 
notice

   "Oh, the argument to '-m' is just a single SHA1, let's see if it's a
    commit, and turn '-m' into '--reuse-message' automatically"

If anybody cares. Does cogito already use "-m"?
