That's not what "git rebase" does.  It's exactly (modulo changes to
the index, which I guess don't apply to monotone) what "git reset"
does (with --mixed, which is the default).

(Perhaps "rebase" is a suitable name for this; git's not particularly
consistent with anything else (in particular "git revert" does what
"mtn disapprove" does, which causes confusion occasionally).)
