Allow the use of tags within the Git Rebase dialog

I'm using TortoiseGit 126.96.36.199, git version 1.7.11.msysgit.1
I have a repo clone with a branch called "develop", which is based on upstream tag "v1.0". I've made a simple change to a file there and merged that change to "develop". Now I want to rebase my "develop" branch to upstream tag "v1.5"
I can do this on the command line (git bash) by simply running:
git rebase --onto v1.5 v1.0 develop
(I can omit "develop" by explicitly checking out on the develop branch first)
However, the TortoiseGit GUI appears to only accept branches.
Therefore, it would definitely be useful to have the option of specifying either a branch OR a tag for a given rebase, allowing one to make effective use of the rebase gui for this use case.
