The whole point of reflog is that it is a mechanism to let users to
go safely back to the previous state, by using a file that is pretty
much append-only.  It feels that a mechanism to "rewrite" one goes
completely against that principle, at least to me.

I have a feeling that "need" in "need for this feature" is a
misspelt "want", that occasional misspelling of the stash message
may give users awkward feelings when viewing "git stash list" output
but not severe enough to make them unable to identify which stash
entry holds which change, and that it is sufficient to pop and then
restash if a user *really* cares.
