I don't think rebasing affects the sizes of commits.

I am trying to make commits that build.  Sometimes they can be small.
Sometimes they create an entire FFI generator, or a test for said FFI
generator *with* build support.  I suppose I could have implemented
the build support before the test, even split the test library from
the actual test,... but none of that would help me produce something
that works.  How would I test the building of FFIS without one?

Is a quick skim of the commit message not effective?
