Hrm, not really.  "git add" is about manipulating the index and its
promise is that it won't touch working tree files.  And people rely
on that promise.

I can see how it would be useful to have a UI that is more
interactive than CLI that shows you a list of paths and lets you
pick from the list to run "git checkout" on, but I think "git add"
is a bad match to it.
