I'm using Git for over 2 years now since I switched from SVN. I don't really
know what there is "baroque" or "whacked definitions", do you care do explain
a little bit more?
Rewriting history is a good thing, as long as it's not published. For example,
you can amend commits, if you forgot something, you can re-order commits to
make your changes more understandable for others, etc. As long as your commits
are not published to others, who cares if you rewrite your history.
