Showing the commit message here is too much IMHO. With a typical
50-characters message, it already gives

# You are currently editing a832578 
__________________________________________________ [3/5] while rebasing

and we usually try to fit everything on a 80-columns terminal.

My vote would go for just showing the short sha1. The user can run "git
show $sha1" to get more information if needed, it's just a copy-paste
away. If we want to show the commit message, it should be on its own
