Or unless you have a strict policy of only allowing completed work to
be in the repository (in which case you should probably have branches
for ongoing work anyway), just commit the partly complete work on A
before changing anything for B, and say so in the commit message. You
are going to have to deal with things committed in multiple stages as
soon as someone makes a mistake or takes several tries to get something
finished anyway.
