Not at all. The prompt has nothing to do with sentences.

You could argue that the colors are not very well thought-out
(branch-name has the same color as +), but I really don't see the
problem otherwise. How is this more readable:
(where master is green, * is red, and = is white)?
Looking at what we've done so far, I would argue that we're not
thinking about the usability of the prompt enough: it currently
screams I AM DOING REBASE-i! (and similarly for other operations in
progress). I intend to fix these things in future patches.
