Rebasing means that nobody else can depend on or work with that tree,
so it's a no-no.

Sure, it works if you are the only person touching it, but then you
had better not export it at all, so what's the point?

We have had independent problems in another branch exactly because it
was rebased and people merged it, so bringing up rebasing as a
"solution" is wrong-headed. It just causes *more* problems of other
kinds, even if it may make git request-pull trivial.
