I believe that rebase -i should be safe with the change but to be sure,
I'll change the line to read:

	opts->default_msg_cleanup = get_cleanup_mode(s, !is_rebase_i(opts));

(Note to self, this will require a change in rebase--helper.c too.)

The reason why I made it die was because I wanted to reuse that function
as much as possible and it already happened to be implemented that way.
However, there is prescedent in the code for dieing on invalid
configuration options, namely in date.c:

	if (mode->type == DATE_STRFTIME) {
		if (!skip_prefix(p, ":", &p))
			die("date format missing colon separator: %s", format);
		mode->strftime_fmt = xstrdup(p);
	} else if (*p)
		die("unknown date format %s", format);

That being said, I'm pretty ambivalent between making it a warning and a
die. If you have any strong opinions on this, I can change it to a
warning.

Thanks,

Denton
