​The important thing when de-phabbing the commit message is to keep the

"Differential Revision: ..."

line intact; that way `arc` and Phabricator recognise what differential the
commit belongs to.

​I always de-phab the commit messages before landing manually (alas `arc
land` is useless here) because otherwise we end up with non-idiomatic
commit messages which look terrible everywhere else except in
Phabricator... :-/​
