Recent discussions have shown that rebase isn't as well understood as as perhaps it should be for the basic user.
Add a softer introductory paragraph to the man page description, and in the second patch, add a second paragraph explaining the build up of the command so that users have a historical context in which to rationalise the command structure. The second patch/paragraph will probably need the quoting checking as to which are quoting the generic command and which are the same text as a command example. Basic wording is borrowed from on-list clarifications.
