You are misreading me.  I am not defending every bit at all.

We both agree that what b397ea4863a1 (status: show more info than
"currently not on any branch", 2013-03-13) expects from "git status"
during an interrupted "git rebase" is _not_ sacred, especially when
we are about to fix what "git rebase" records in the reflog.

I am only saying that the last test the commit adds must be kept
unbroken.  I am also saying that, even though that commit did not
add a test for "detached from" case, we should add something like
the attached to protect the behaviour.  These two are sacred.

What happens to be shown during a stopped "git rebase" is not.

I have been assuming the "main" thing Duy wanted to do was the last
test (and the one below), but was this meant as an improvement for
"git status" output during that state?  Showing $ONTO certainly
makes some sense, and from that point of view, the change we are
discussing _will_ be a regression if it just shows a random thing.
If you want to avoid regression, the codepath in wt-status.c should
compensate for the change to "rebase" so that it checks $dotest/onto
and show what is recorded in there.

But in practice, as far as we know other people are working on it in
the near-by thread, I do not think this particular regression (if it
was) matters that much.  At the worst, we can queue that on top of
this topic to fix "rebase ; checkout -" and have them graduate at
the same time to avoid it.
