Before we get ahead of ourselves:

1) this has nothing to do with the patch series at hand, and

2) if we were to introduce `git continue`, we would need to think long and
   hard about the following issues:

        I) are there potentially ambiguous <relevant-cmd>s that the user
           may want to continue?

        II) what about options? You can say `git rebase --continue
            --no-ff`, for example, but not `git cherry-pick --continue

        III) Would it not be confusing to have a subcommand `continue`
             that does *not* serve a *single* purpose? It's kinda flying
             into the face of the Unix philosophy.
