I strongly dislike that metadata cannot be versioned or changed, for
example commit messages.

Given the often low-quality commit messages we suffer from around here
and the importance they have when debugging or understanding the code
I think there has to be a way to update and fix them.

And I am most emphatically *not* talking about spelling errors in commit
messages.  Repeat after me, this is *not* about pedantic nitpicking[1].


P.S.: This has been alleged on IRC several times, despite me denying it,
hence this seemingly silly repetition.
