This is all very cool, but I worry about how we define `auto` as a rebase-only scoped revset. How do we make that discoverable? I like the way `--auto` (or some other name) is discoverable in `hg help rebase`. Losing that inside the long-form prose of the help text (which is the only place I can think of to document a magic rebase-specific revset?) seems like a bummer to me...

It automatically rebases the specified set of revisions - that is, it automatically picks the destination. Does that make sense? (I don't know what you think could be more auto here?) I honestly find it very confusing to write `hg rebase --orphans 'orphan()'`. Any thoughts about that?
