Applause! A very welcome addition. I've found myself editing the todo
list every now and then, and I'd like to do that more often. This new
feature would make it dead simple.

Did you think about what can go wrong? For example, starting with this
todo sheet:

  exec false
  pick 1234567

and then the user changes the 'pick' to 'squash' after rebase stopped at
the failed 'exec' command.
