long-forgotten rebase, and a rm -rf $state_dir will get rid of the WIP
as well.

The other reason is that it shouldn't interact with the rest of git.
This means no touching any refs or reflogs, and this can be
problematic if we decide to use the standard git stash.  I'm currently
working towards seeing if it's possible to get stash to create "named

own homegrown stash.
