logical way to move working-directory changes across branches without
having to either (a) really commit, or (b) update to the common ancestor,
then up to the target head.

referring to the changes explicitly by the identifier shown in --list isn't
too hard.

$ hg stash -p 'first(.:: and stashed())'
