Ok, after 40 messages in this RFC, I think we should sum this up:

- hg amend vs hg commit --amend: pretty much a tie but mpm on board with
  going with --amend.
- allow amend on non-head with a warning: most were against this. going to
- open editor by default with old commit message (no --edit): opinions
vary, going with
  this for now.
- keep old user/date on new commit: opinions also vary, but seems better
  the opposite (so we can add -U/-D rather than --keep-user/date).
- strip amended commit: some think we shouldn't, didn't see a conclusive
  why and how the user is going to avoid pushing the old commit.
- amending merges: should be possible, will not be implemented for now.

Feel free to raise other unfinished business, patch will be sent sometime
next week.
