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).)

I think "rebase" is a good name for Ludovic's solution. Monotone already has the concept of "base revision" (e.g. get_base_revision_id) and "rebase" sounds like "change base revision". So it would be internally consistent. In turn, to me "reset" send a very different message.
