Having said all that, I actually think that "rebase" shouldn't be
invoking "git checkout" (and its equivalent) internally when
switching to a specific version, in such a way that it would trigger
any end-user specified hooks and allow them to muck with the working
tree and the index state.

I haven't checked the actual implementation of "git rebase" for
quite some time to be sure, but we have lower-level plumbing
commands that are not affected by the end-user hooks for exactly
that kind of "build higher-level commands by synthesis of
lower-level machinery", and it is very possible that what we are
looking at is actually a bug that needs to be fixed.  I dunno.
