When I know I want to add a1.txt, I can say "git add a1.txt", but
with your version of Git, I now have to say "git status" to first
find out what file number a1.txt corresponds to so that I can say
"git add 1"?  Worse yet, after saying "git diff 1" to check the
progress of a1.txt, which may be long and scroll the output from
"git status" off the top of my screen, I need to run "git status"
again to see what file number a2.txt corresponds to?

That does not make any sense even as a typesaver.  Besides, what if
I have a file whose name is "1" that I would want to add?

You may be looking for either "git gui", or "git add -i" (if you do
not like a windowed environment), both of which would let you choose
pathnames with fewer keystrokes.
