Please don't say that Git has an advantage over Mercurial here.

Mercurial has shipped the MQ extension[1] 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.
