Here's an idea, that I think could make a good GSoC project.  Dscho
mentioned this to me at Git Merge, and I liked the idea, but I'd like
to get some feedback on the list first before adding it to the project
list, to get others opinions on the feasibility.

The idea is to add an option to 'git stash push', so it can stash
merge conflicts, and restore them with 'git stash pop'.  The various
stages of the files could be represented as commits, and the stash
commit would be an octopus merge of those commits, so they could be
re-created later.  The same idea can also be extended to store staged
vs. unstaged changes, so we can re-create the index state as it was
before creating the stash.
