Do you mean to say that a `git reset` during `git cherry-pick <range>`
aborts it?

In my experience, this is not the case. The advice printed out after a
conflict even recommends to run `git reset` (followed by `git cherry-pick
--continue`, in lieu of the `git cherry-pick --skip` we have yet to
implement).

So I don't think it is correct to say that `git reset` does not let the
user get back to continuing a cherry-pick...

Ciao,
Dscho
