Me too. Another one I use is:

  $ hack hack hack
  $ git commit -m wip
  $ git checkout something-else
  ... time passes ...
  $ git checkout orig-branch
  $ git reset --soft HEAD^
  $ hack hack hack
  $ git diff
  $ git add -p
  $ git commit

which ends up with the same history as "commit --amend", but in between
the reset and the commit, the bogus WIP commit is thrown away entirely.
And things like "diff" and "add -p" do what you want, instead of showing
your progress on top of the WIP.
