To me it is, because amend is actually for catching errors. So I do not need
to keep another command in mind. What I use to save is just commit.
When I think of bigger refactoring, it’s different, though.
You could say that I use hg commit --amend when I don’t actually want to think
of the history right now. I just want to amend the latest state and not fiddle
with the graph in any way.
