Hugh! Didn't know that.

Is it actually expected from users to manually edit
.git/rebase-apply/patch path? I can't find any reference about that in
the documentation and it really sounds like interfering with the git

Shouldn't git-am/git-rebase expose this to the user (I'm thinking about
something like

  git am --edit-offending-patch
  git am --fix-patch
