Yes, I know that.  But what I am hoping is that it won't actually
touch the commits on the side branches UNLESS you tell in the insn
sequence to modify them with "edit", "reword", etc. and instead
fast-forward them.

Of course, it will allow you to muck with these commits on the side
branches, which is a potential source of mistakes.
