I tried explaining Emacs' git support through vc was the other day, and
he just couldn't wrap his head around how easy Emacs makes it.  "But...
but...  staging...  the index...  how...  wha..."  When you're finally
proficient in a nigh-incomprehensible tool like command line git, it
sounds as if something's missing in Emacs somehow.
Yes, Git is brainwashing us.

I don't think it's fair. Git provides good tools. Just the other day I was thinking of how to commit only a part of changes in a file. Git makes it easy with 'git add -p', using the staging area.

Not sure what the closest VCS-neutral approach would be. Selecting chunks somehow in a vc-diff buffer?
