I also got bit by a similar situation yesterday, on another list - but
with send-email instead of push.

Yes, it can be reasonable to push a patch while the tree is still dirty
for unrelated reasons.  But I agree that it seems like an advanced
option, and that most users would much rather be informed any time
'send-email' or 'push' is attempted while changes are still pending,
especially if the changes being emailed or pushed touch the same files.
 There's probably a way to set up git hooks to forbid push actions if
the tree is dirty, but that would be a question for the git lists or irc

If either one of us finds a solution for such a hook, be sure to post it
back here.
