Sure it does? You just lose the changes made since the previous commit, but
that's no different from restoring from backup. The restored file is only
as up to date as the last time a backup was taken.

Then restore from wherever you are pushing to.

But as Devin says, any backup strategy that requires the user to make a
backup is untrustworthy. I'm hoping that the next generation of DVCSs will
support continuous commits, the next generation of editors support
continuous saves, and the only time you need interact with the editor
(apart from, you know, actual editing) is to tell it "start a new branch
