It is the best way to have a "clean" patch, of course, as you can mangle
the commit history to have only the right commits. However it is bad for
people who are following a git repository.

To our ends, I would like to never see rebases in the published branches
(master, topic branches, ...). If we want to have a (set of) scratch
branch to play with and to rebase freely that is fine, but they should
be advertised as such.
