How do we tell the difference between new-style invocations, and
old-style ones that look new-style? IOW, I think:

  git stash create -m works

currently treats "-m works" as the full message, and it would now become
just "works".

That may be an acceptable loss for the benefit we are getting. The
alternative is to make yet another verb for create, as we did with
save/push). I have a feeling that hardly anybody uses "create", though,
and it's mostly an implementation detail. So given the obscure nature,
maybe it's an acceptable level of regression. I dunno.

But either way, it should probably be in the commit message in case
somebody does have to track it down later.
