does `git commit` modify $GIT_DIR/index?
i just diffed index from before and after a commit and found no
difference.  i'm guessing this is reliable behavior, but i wanted to
make sure.  it seems like the idea of index is that it's always ready
and waiting to be turned into the next commit.  so commits wouldn't ever
modify it.

i'm writing a script that depends on this behavior and i want to make
sure i have the concepts right.

i searched online but found mostly posts telling me higher level stuff,
like that "you have to add to the staging area before committing".  i also
searched the archives for this mailing list, but there's a _lot_ to go
through.  sorry if this is a repeat.
