Yes.  This command line option should be like this:

 - "--rebase" and "--no-rebase" are accepted as "true" and "false";

 - "--rebase=preserve" should be the _only_ way to spell the new
   mode of operation (if we were to add "--rebase=interactive"
   later, that should follow suit); and

 - "--rebase=true" and "--rebase=false" is nice to have for
   consistency.

Thanks.
