Mercurial calls it shelving. (personally, I tend to refer to 'git
stash' rather than 'hg shelve' given the former's increased
mindshare.. but this thread started with the 'shelve' term)

I expected us to alias 'shelve' and 'stash' to the same operation,
much like we have both 'svn blame' and 'svn praise'.
