If we don't set rebase.useBuiltin to false, then there is also a minor
regression in the error message printed by the built-in rebase we may
want to try to address.  I have a patch for it at
<20181122044841.20993-2-newren@xxxxxxxxx>, but I don't know if that
patch is acceptable as-is this close to a release since that'd not
give translators much time to update.
