I am not sure I like this change, as it describes an implementation detail
that users should neither know, nor care about, nor rely on.

For above-mentioned reason, I'd suggest dropping these three hunks.

Do we really care at this stage? IOW what breaks if we still write that
file, even in --merge mode?

This makes me think even more that we don't care...

Did you not mean to turn this into a test for actually_interactve ||
do_merge?

This could now be combined with the previous if (and the `-n` could be
added to the latter test):

	if test -n "$actually_interactive" -o -n "$do_merge" &&
		test -n "$incompatible_opts"

The indentation would change, but this hunk is already confusing to read,
anyway, so...

Likewise, this would be easier to read as

	if test -z "$actually_interactive" && test "$mb" = "$orig_head"

Also: how certain are we that "$mb" does not start with a dash? We may
have to use the `test a"$mb" = a"$orig_head"` trick here... But I guess
this is moved code, so if it is buggy, it was buggy before.

This might be called a regression... I don't know any user of `git rebase
-m`, but I guess if I was one, I would like to keep seeing those messages.

It *should* be relatively easy to tell the sequencer.c to issue these
messages, I think. But it would be more work.

This is a bit sad, because it seems to suggest that we now do more
unnecessary work here, or is my reading incorrect?
