Or even better, "git commit --reword $SHA1" brings up the editor with
commit message of $SHA1. Modify any way you want and it creates a new
empty, "reword!" commit that contains the diff between the old commit
message and the new one. "reword!" can be consumed by "rebase -i
--autosquash" without bringing up the editor again. I realize making
"git commit --reword" run multiple times would be tricky though...
