In particular the merge-and-stop-before-commit, and then manually
picking parts of the tree from one of the branches (a former colleague
referred to this as a "gonzo merge").

The use case is where a subtree comes completely from one branch, while
the rest comes from a different branch (and I've had that particular use
case (driven by other necessitiesm, btw.  Not driven by git. git
actually made that easy)).
