And I think -p form (which I do not use myself so please double
check) can be run with an empty pathspec.

It looks somewhat idiotic that

        git checkout master
        git checout -p next

will finish on the 'master' branch, with random selected bits of
differences for 'master' to go to 'next' applied to the index and
the working tree, but that seems to be how it works.
