Nice, thank you :)

A small nitpick - I see you use phrasing like "select lines", where 
the other commands usually talk about "staging", instead, so "stage 
lines" might be more aligned with the existing text.

I`ll quickly go through the patches regarding this (not being of much 
help for the code itself at the moment, sorry!).

Regards, Buga
