Git, for instance, does not have it (git reset cannot be undone) but it has
"git stash".  I personnally use darcs revert/unvert as a git stash/pop

Agreed with everything else in favor of deletion.

I do.

What about having a stash equivalent --- ie. a stack, or just a set?, of patch
created and named automatically with a single command, etc.

Well, this would probably make revert more complex rather than simplify it :-(

Sorry, no good idea, just personal use cases.
