I find myself performing similar actions to you: using git add -p to stage
hunks, sometimes editing the staged patch; and keeping mental notes of things I
wanted to revert, sometimes changing them in the editor in another window, and
sometimes reverting them after the add session with git checkout -p).
The interactive staging-and-editing tool could be improved, but I'm not sure
that tool should be called 'git add -p'. git add doesn't touch the working tree
— at least I hope not, because I wouldn't expect it.
But I eagerly support more discussion. If someone does want to add this feature
to "git add -p" (or named differently), I'll add a request for another letter
(perhaps '!') to edit the hunk in the working tree.
