That'll empty out the patch entirely. You'd have to do something like
qnew -f tmp; qpop; qrefresh -e; qpush; qref -X *; qdel tmp

(or whatever 'shelve' incantation you prefer).

I agree with other comments in this thread that it would be nice to
have commands for manipulating the series rather than just the applied
patches. qreorder, qexport, etc would be nice, and maybe a qheader
-e for this particular task?
