Yes, it's not very likely, but sometimes the todo file takes a bit of
time to finalize. So there's a good chance that the user can get
interrupted, context switched, or went to do some double checking. And
when the user returns to the editor, it's difficult to tell whether
he's in a fresh rebase or a stopped rebase, unless he remembers. It's
an unlikely scenario, but if it does happen, I think a short reminder
could avoid some user panic.
I don't plan to change how the todo file looks for a fresh rebase.
I'll probably just add something like this for the stopped rebase
# You are editing the todo of an ongoing rebase. To continue
rebase after editing, run: "git rebase --continue"
That will also remind the user to run "--continue" afterwards.
