git4idea and the index

I couldn't find a place dedicated to git4idea discussion, so I'm posting here. I hope it's ok.

What are the git4idea plans regarding the index? Completely abstract it? Not use it at all?

Many people dislike git's index, but I think it's a powerful tool -- and ideologically, I think version control integration should always try to stay as true as possible to the original tool (reason why I hate eclipse's "team" plugins).

I'm hoping to be able to stage files and keep editing without adding the new changes to the index, to partially stage files (like git add -i), and all the goodies the index provides. Is anything like this planned?
