Be it graft or replace, I do not think we want to invite people to
use these mechansims too lightly to locally rewrite their history
willy-nilly without fixing their mistakes at the object layer with
"commit --amend", "rebase", "bfg", etc. in the longer term.  So in
that sense, adding a command to make it easy is not something I am
enthusiastic about.

On the other hand, if the user does need to use graft or replace
(perhaps to prepare for casting the fixed history in stone with
filter-branch), it would be good to help them avoid making mistakes
while doing so and tool support may be a way to do so.

So, ... I am of two minds.
