As there are quite a lot of fixes to the sequencer machinery since
that topic forked from the mainline.  For example, [06/16] has
unpleasant merge conflicts with 1ace63bc ("rebase --exec: make it
work with --rebase-merges", 2018-08-09) that has been in master for
the past couple of months.  IOW, the tip of ag/rebase-i-in-c is a
bit too old a base to work on by now.  

I think I queued the previous round on the result of merging
ag/rebase-i-in-c into master, i.e. 61dc7b24 ("Merge branch
'ag/rebase-i-in-c' into ag/sequencer-reduce-rewriting-todo",
2018-10-09).  That may be a more reasonable place to start this
update on.
