Although this only adds to the message, right? A few years ago,
someone proposed 'git replace --edit' for this, but I found it creates
a lot of refs which cause noticeable slowdown for all git
operations[1]. Not sure if 'git notes' would also create many refs.
Andreas Schwab mentioned something about a new git refs backend to
scale better[2]. Did anything ever come of that?
