You said you didn't want to regress to show senseless information, and
I agreed with that.  What is wrong with the patch I showed in the
previous email?  Smudging is a bad hack, and must only be used as a
last resort: when an another topics updates status to say something
sensible, it will have to unsmudge the tests.

The "try to minimize" is a somewhat admirable goal, but I have shown
that your midway solution is wrong.  Either dedicate a lot of time and
effort towards improving status for rebase, or don't attempt it.

Unless we change the first line drastically to say: "rebase in
progress: rebasing onto $ONTO" (or something), I don't think this
makes sense.  And if we were to do that, why not do it properly like
"rebase ($N/$M): onto $ONTO, upstream $UPSTREAM, branch $BRANCH"?
Other people on a different thread are already handling that, and I am
not interested.

So, you have three simple choices now:

1. Accept the simple patch I proposed above.
2. Propose an alternative patch quickly.  *Patch*.  No more English.
3. Reject all patches, and leave me no choice but to smudge.

Which one is it going to be?
