The git rebase documentation has

ORIG_HEAD is set to point at the tip of the branch before the reset.

so doing

git reset ORIG_HEAD

does reset to the state before the rebase.

For avoiding the original problem of --co completing to
--committer-date-is-author-date I'm using the alias rc for git rebase
--continue.
