Hmm, that sequence also seems wrong in that the "git rm --cached" will
make previously committed files become "deleted" in the tree.

It seems like it's necessary to test whether a file has already been
committed, and use "git co" if so, and otherwise use "git rm --cached".

Since VC already appears to know whether the file's in the repo or just
"added" (in the mode-line, it shows "@" for newly added files, but ":"
or "-" for already-in-the-repo files), that should be possible, right?
