Hm. Whenever I find myself trying to merge something in a tree that
also has uncommitted changes (which is not very often), what I do is
"git stash" to save my work elsewhere and then run the git merge. That
way, if things go wrong (which is also not very often), I can just abort
the merge and pop the patch from the stash, and I'm right back where I
started. Otherwise, I pop my patch from the stash anyway and any merges
are handled by the same merge mechanism, so I can also roll that back if
things don't turn the way I initially wanted.
So while you can certainly screw up and lose work, it's also true that
you have all the tools not to.
