Avoid using git-foo syntax in documentation, it suggests that this is
valid command, which isn't true anymore. `git foo` seems the most common
syntax. Also, git-rebase--interactive is not user-visible => `git rebase

This looks weird. First, spaces around == (here and below). Then, the
logic is unintuitive. The "if" suggests everything is allright, and the
message below is very specific. This at least deserves a comment.

Spaces around ==.

The output format seems to be meant only for machine-consumption. Is
there any case when we'd want color? I'd say we can disable coloring
completely for this format (normally, color=auto does the right thing,
but I prefer being 100% sure I'll get no color when writing scripts)

Why do you need this trivial wrapper?

Other than that, I like the idea (although I have no concrete use-case
in mind), but I didn't actually test the patch.
