Umm, --fixup is already taken and makes the subject be 'fixup! <subject
of argument>'.  This can then be used by rebase -i --autosquash (or
rebase.autosquash=true) to automatically put the fixup(s) that have
accumulated into the right places.  In addition, git-rebase learned to
automatically use the upstream as the default base.

So for me it's usually a matter of

  git add -p
  git commit --fixup=...
  # repeat the above two until all fixups are lined up
  git rebase -i
  # close editor without making changes

Is that still too much effort?

The ideas discussed in
also help selecting the fixup argument more quickly.
