I seem to hear you saying you generate a new commit every time you
save. I have no idea how that could work. It's not at all like my

I usually save every few to few dozen seconds[1], but commit only
every few mintues to few tens of minutes. After an hour or two working
I'm likely to have a half dozen to dozen commits to coalesece into
1-3, and sorting them into bugfixes, refactorings and new work is easy
since they all have commit messages, even if just at the level of what
I produce in ten seconds while distracted ("Maybe fixed that other
thing that Joe said").

Having a hundred commits with no messages to sort through would be a
nightmare for me. But I'm probably missing something here.
