Does "restore --index" (now "--staged") work the same way as
"--cached" aka "--staged" in git-diff?  "--cached" is about
affecting only what is in the index (as opposed to "--index"
affecting both the index and the working tree).

If it does, then calling it "--cached" aka "--staged" does make more
sense than calling it "--index", I would think.  Otherwise, such a
rename does not buy us much.
