Actually, no.  "commit -s" does not have any need to see through it.

        ... hack hack hack ...
        $ git commit -a -s
        ... editor opens, you see your Sign-off at the end, with
        ... the cursor sitting on the first line
        ... edit the title, move to the line below the Sign-off,
        ... and do the "---\n\n * comment" thing.

And this survives "rebase -i" (but not "format-patch | am" for
obvious reasons).

So I take it back.  The time you do the "git commit" for the very
first time for this change that may need to be rerolled number of
times is the right time to say "-s".
