    No, use "git rebase --interactive" ;-)

    I've tried stgit/guilt/quilt as well, but I could never quite get the
    hang of it (adding the files _before_ editing is the difficult part.) On
    the other hand, git rebase --interactive fit right into my workflow and
    improved it massively.

    But I guess it's all a matter of personal preference.
