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.

Yeah, "rebase the last $n commits" would be a nice touch.

git rebase -i -10 --onto v1.9.0 # rebase the last 10 commits in this branch etc.
