Not quite, in two ways, I think. First, it _would_ update the index,
wouldn't it? Second, "git checkout <rev> -- path" doesn't delete files
that are deleted in <rev> as compared to head.
I'm considering implementing support for an operation that would do
what I expected "git checkout <rev> -- <path>" and "git reset --hard
<rev> -- <path>" to do. I'm currently planning for it to be exactly
"git reset --hard <rev> -- <path>" (which is currently simply not
allowed), but perhaps it would be more natural as an option to
checkout (--also-deleted or something)?
