Yes. I was thinking comparing the old state of "Unstaged Changes" to
the new state and preserving (or approximating) the selected filename
and scroller position if possible.

When unstaging a line (or a hunk) there is internally no possibility
for the currently selected filename to disappear from the "Unstaged
Changes" list.

The problem is that the selected filename and scroller position are
reinitialized. It is uncomfortable when "Unstaged Changes" contains a
lot of filenames.
