From: Johannes Schindelin <johannes.schindelin@gmx.de>

The 'edit' command can be used to cherry-pick a commit and then
immediately drop out of the interactive rebase, with exit code 0, to let
the user amend the commit, or test it, or look around.

Sometimes this functionality would come in handy *without*
cherry-picking a commit, e.g. to interrupt the interactive rebase even
before cherry-picking a commit, or immediately after an 'exec' or a
'merge'.

This commit introduces that functionality, as the spanking new 'break'
command.

The earlier one had "break;" here, which broke out of the while()
loop, let the control reach "if (is_reabse_i(opts)) {" block after
the loop, and the block would have noticed that current < nr and
returned 0.  So from the point of view of the overall control flow
of the caller of this function, there is no change relative to v2.
The only difference in v3 is that stopped_at_head() gives a useful
message.

Good.

Well, I should have called out this `break;` -> `return 0;` change, too,
as I think it makes the code flow *a lot* more obvious. As you say, I
relied earlier on the next loop to return early, but that is not what the
`edit` command does: it returns out of the first loop, too.

 the files and/or the commit message, amend the commit, and continue
 rebasing.
 
+To interrupt the rebase (just like an "edit" command would do, but without
+cherry-picking any commit first), use the "break" command.

 If you just want to edit the commit message for a commit, replace the
 command "pick" with the command "reword".
