Please don't say that Git has an advantage over Mercurial here.
Mercurial has shipped the MQ extension for ages, which is frequently
used to refine changesets before they are pushed. Mercurial later grew a
rebase extension, a histedit extension (works like 'git rebase -i'), and
various other extensions for editing changesets.
