Hi Pratyush Yadav,

Yes, we know it can be done this way. The point being made is not
"this cannot be changed with the keyboard". We know that you can
fool around with the tab key and the shift key and the spacebar and
eventually you can succeed in changing this option.

And if you want to toggle it back again, you have to do a slightly
different keyboard dance, depending on where your cursor or
highlight is currently positioned.

Rather what we (at least I) am hoping to communicate is that after you
have done this many thousands of times, and you can do everything
else in git-gui very fast without touching the mouse, you might also join
us in wishing for action to be achievable with one hotkey-combination
event that does not affect any other state, it just toggles new/amend
commit, and is not a sequence of several multi-key actions which must
be adapted according to the current status of other input mode actions.
