OK, this is a more sensible comparison.

The first command will remove the entries from the index entirely, and
the second one will return them to their state in HEAD. So _if_ the
existing commit in HEAD did not have the files at all, the two are

But if the files were committed previously, then the second command will
return them to that state, not remove them entirely.
