(last Friday I, mostly by accident, discovered that magit supports 'git
add -p': go to the diff buffer (ie. 'd d' with the cursor on a file with
changes) and stage the indivdual hunks https://stackoverflow.com/a/1096508)

That descibes the magit approach.  But having no concept of staging
would make it hard to implement.
