I had missed this one. But that's not the only case, you may also have
problems with renames. The complete list would be really long to have
here, and won't bring much to the user.

Actually, I think it essentially says it all. If your changes are
important enough to deserve a real backup, you should stash or commit.
If you're ready to take the risk of losing it (the risk is small, but
does exist), it's OK to run "git merge" blindly.
