this is quite weird for me (user). git pull also fetches objects from
server and aborts user's action if working copy contains uncommitted
modifications on files that will be modified by incoming objects.

from the other side, the cherry-pick needs to stat() the whole working
copy to achieve similar precondition. looks like suboptimal implementation.

maybe you can use the existing implementation used by 'pull' ?
