My workflow is to ... not use "git add -i" ;-).

To add patch hunks individually, "git add -p" jumps directly to the
"patch" inner loop of "git add -i".

To add whole individual files, a plain "git add" using zsh's smart
completion (autocompletes only files for which "git add" is not a
no-op), or globs.
