I've just gone through this thread (at least, those messages available
on the archive I'm using) and the only places people bring up the word
“evil” are in putting words into other people's mouths. The earliest
being that Andrew Cowie claims the Bazaar core developers think rebase
is evil — yet I can never find any of them saying so themselves.

So, if you're responding to claims of “rebase is evil”, can you please
show where that claim was made and by whom?
