} That's not completely true. There is git-replace(1) which can be used to 
} create replacement versions of objects, in this case commits.

Apologies; the reason I put that in a footnote is because when I say
"can't change what info is stored" I didn't mean "can't replace the
data" I meant "can't alter the data structures" (or "schema" if you
prefer to treat it like a database).  I wasn't referring back to the
"immutable" log messages.

Just as a trivial but not entirely irrelevant example, we can't make
git distinguish a zsh mailing list article sequence number and output
it in a particular way in the autogenerated commit log by changing
the format string.
