I need to update the add -i documentation but otherwise I think these
patches are OK so I thought I'd try and get some feedback. They build
on top of the recount fixes in [1]. The commit message for the first
patch describes the motivation:

"When I end up editing hunks it is almost always because I want to
stage a subset of the lines in the hunk. Doing this by editing the
hunk is inconvenient and error prone (especially so if the patch is
going to be reversed before being applied). Instead offer an option
for add -p to stage individual lines. When the user presses 'l' the
hunk is redrawn with labels by the insertions and deletions and they
are prompted to enter a list of the lines they wish to stage. Ranges
of lines may be specified using 'a-b' where either 'a' or 'b' may be
omitted to mean all lines from 'a' to the end of the hunk or all lines
from 1 upto and including 'b'."


Phillip Wood (3):
  add -p: select individual hunk lines
  add -p: allow line selection to be inverted
  add -p: optimize line selection for short hunks
