I am unfamiliar with Mercurial, but looking at
where the table says that index/staging area is not necessary in Mercurial
and suggests to use shelve instead that corresponds to Git's stash,
it would be possible to do the same with Hg as we first tried to do
with Git using stash: put changes to stash/shelve, commit and restore
the previous state.  In older VCSes that have neither index/staging area
nor stash/shelve, working area should be cleared by temporarily moving
changed files somewhere.

Anyway, the main point is that adepts of any existing VCS or any future
VCS can easily adapt their VCSes for this feature by just implementing
the backend call 'checkin-patch'.
