Yeah, I do this a lot, too.  The interface you propose makes sense to
me, though I'm not sure how much I would use it, as I often do not know
the specifier of the commit I want to change (was it "HEAD~3 or
HEAD~4?"). I guess using ":/" could make that easier.

One comment on the option name:

I'd expect "-$n" to mean "rebase the last $n commits" (as opposed to
everything not in the upstream). That does not work currently, of
course, but:

  1. It has the potential to confuse people who read it, since it's
     unlike what "-1" means in most of the rest of git.

  2. It closes the door if we want to support "-$n" in the future.
