Thanks you Johan! I look forward to hearing your comments when you have
a chance.

Yes, I would find that useful myself. A good future extension.

That's what I mean by the 'patch hunks' feature listed in the 'Role
Models' table in the 'UI' doc which is linked from the 'Dev' doc. Bazaar
'bzr shelve' does that interactively by default, and both Mercurial and
Git do it with 'hg shelve --interactive' and 'git stash --patch'.
