I agree, but I think there are other unexpected things.

I don't know what 'git rebase master' does, but I would expect 'git
rebase --onto=master' to do the same thing. Then, if 'git rebase
--onto=next master..topic' makes sense, so should 'git rebase next

Moreover, it often annoys me that 'git rebase master' does exactly
what I want, but 'git rebase --onto=master previous' doesn't find the
commits that are already into 'master'. One would expect the more
defined version to work better, but it doesn't =/
