In general, I prefer nothing to be *interactive*, so I would vote an
emphatic no.

Also, try "tig" and see if you can customise it.  For example, in
order to create a new commit that is meant to be a fixup of some other
commit, I 'git add' what is needed (either command line or tig again)
then hit "m" to the main window, scroll down to the commit concerned,
and hit "=".

That "=" comes from this line in ~/.tigrc:

    bind    main            =   !git commit --fixup=%(commit)

Please use such methods to keep interactivity where it belongs, is my opinion.
