I found the first sentence a little hard to parse, and there are a few
more details that might be worth mentioning:
Edit an object's content interactively. The existing content for
<object> is pretty-printed into a temporary file, an editor is
launched on the file, and the result is parsed to create a new
object of the same type as <object>. A replacement ref is then
created to replace <object> with the newly created object.
I do not know if it is worth mentioning git-commit and git-var here. But
if we want to, I think git-var is sufficient (git-commit seems to mostly
just points at git-var these days).
