Beware, though. I don't have my Git reference to hand, but I've noted
that if the file is in the index, it is "tracked" and the git-reset
manual page says:
Resets the index and working tree. Any changes to tracked files
in the working tree since <commit> are discarded.
What you want is an exception for files that are in the index but
*not* in the base commit. Or perhaps the criterion should be "files
that are in the commit", rather than "tracked files".
