Yes. For example, while you are resolving a conflict, you might notice
that it would make sense to do something different in the remaining
rebase sequence. You don't want to continue if some conflicts remain.
And you don't want to wait editing the todo list until you are done with
the conflicts because you might have forgotten that you wanted to do
something different.

Yes, I do care. At times I tend to have a very short attention span. Or
it is Windows's slowness that expires my short-term memory more often
than not. ;)
