In addition to what Thomas said -- you can actually commit your local
changes and switch the branch. When you are back, you can remove the
tip commit while keeping the changes in the working tree using
$ git reset HEAD^

Such sort of thing is OK to do if you're sure you did not push your
branch to any place from someone could branch off it.
