Git documentation on branching.

- Subject: Git documentation on branching.
I just started playing around with branching in git.
I have been using it more or less as Subversion until now.
One feature with "git branch xyz" and "git checkout xyz" that is rather
obvious if you know them but bit me a little since I did not, is that
uncommitted work in progress is not affected or saved when switching
between branches. Thus I cleaned up the directory when working with the
branch and now I'm trying to find a stash where I hopefully have a copy
of those files.
Would it be possible to add something in the documentation to warn
others that uncommitted work is not saved or affected by branching?
The first two hits on my google search was very informative about
branching but I did not see that specific nugget of information (I might
have been careless reading, but if I did not see it others will probably
also miss it).

This is my first try to contribute to the Git community, I hope it will
be useful to somebody.
