yeah - and i use that for general development meanwhile: i just
commit the draft code in small steps (appending it to the commit via
git commit --amend), then i test it and amend it with a final commit
log in the end.

I use that method instead of doing development via uncommitted changes
in the git index, because that way:

- I see the under-development change in a form close to how other
people see it (as a commit)

- I can switch branches during development

- It's sure that changes are not lost

- I can distribute my half-done commits to my testboxes (internally i
use a hierarchy of Git repos on testboxes to automatically propagate
changes)

Once it's pushed out publicly into a persistent branch it cannot be
touched anymore.
