Yes, I do support the overall idea of learning two (or possibly
three) separate commands would help new users to form the right
mental model much sooner than learning one that can be used in
multiple ways.  Another possible approach could be to split the use
of "reset" that does not move "HEAD" into the same half of
"checkout" that does not move "HEAD", i.e. checkout-files.
