Yes, it's hard to get right, many many possible races to consider.
I'm already using git rm --cached and think I may have an ok rm.
Have been considering manually staging git-annex's symlinks using
git update-index, rather than using git add, to avoid the races
inherent in using it.
A trick I like to use when dealing with races is to intentionally make the
race windows very wide, so it's easy to try racey things. A side benefit
here is that it'll allow coalescing related changes into a single update
of the git index, so going slower will in fact speed things up.
You can check out the "watch" branch in git-annex's git repo to
see what I have so far.
