Much less so, of course. Does rebase also recurse by default? log?

suffer, and it would take a whole lot of time and changesets to get
everything integrated properly with the principle of least
astonishment intact.

Not sure what you mean? An -S switch for commit? Why would this bring
development to a stand-still? What kind of "integration"?
