When using rebase, one lose the history of the patch. One important
role of our VCS is to save this history, so i prefer to not use rebase
Another reason to not use rebase, is that in a shared repository
rebasing make cooperation and synchronization more difficult than it
have to be.
I really hope the solution we use will not only give us the patch we
have, but also the history of those patch.
