That page mostly uses single quotes and no dash ('git send-email')for
formatting. Reading 'CodingGuidelines' my understanding is, that git
commands should be typeset with backticks, no dash (`git send-email`). 
So 'git-rebase' (an similar) *should* be typeset as `git rebase`. But
doing so consistently would be a full-diff for this manual page.

Should I do this?
