You could make it a lot safer than "just assumes", and the result
may become generally usable, I think.  For example, you can set a
"magic" bit somewhere in $GIT_DIR/rebase-i while you are in "I am
doing pick/pick/pick and the user will not interfere me" mode, and
clear that bit upon "rebase --continue".  And you cheat only while
that "magic" bit is set.
