Please don't do that.

A topic that depends on everything in 'next' cannot graduate to
'master' until everything that is cooking in 'next' does.

When

 - the "conflict" that would arise is so trivial to resolve,

 - there is no semantic crashes between the new topic and existing
    ones, and

 - the topic is usable even before other topics graduate (or even
   when they get discarded)

please make it a habit to avoid making your topic (i.e. this one)
hostage to another topic (i.e. the absorbgitdirs one), and certainly
not hostage to the whole of 'next'.  A trivial conflict resolution
in this case, if you revert the rebasing and then attempt to merge
the result to 'next', would look like this.

By the way, if conflicts worry you so much, one thing you could do
is this.  Instead of maintaining the ever-growing list of
subcommands and having to worry about textual conflicts, the
completion script could use a clean-up to reduce the need of textual
conflict resolution, when it is quiescent, perhaps like this (I am
assuming that in some future, there is a quiescent period _after_
both of these two topics landed, and this illustration patch is to
be used in such a future).

Merging two topics, each of which adds a new element by inserting a
new line with the element (and the element alone) is on it, is
certainly a lot easier and simpler than having to see what word is
getting inserted by each topic on a single long string on a line.
