I don't see how that's relevant.  By behaving differently from the rest
of Git, I'm afraid we'll just introduce more problems.

Feel free to change the behavior of vc-git-resolve-when-done for the
case where the unstash was done from within Emacs after you've changed
this unstash to behave the way you want it, rather than the way Git
does it.

In my case, the unstash is done by Git with no Emacs involvement, and in
that case it seems that "git add" is just the only sane thing to do.
