This is the opposite operation of stg-float(1): move the specified
patches down the stack. It is for example useful to group stable
patches near the bottom of the stack, where they are less likely to
be impacted by the push of another patch, and from where they can be
more easily committed or pushed.
If no patch is specified on command-line, the current patch gets
sunk. By default patches are sunk to the bottom of the stack, but the
--to option allows one to place them under any applied patch.
Sinking internally involves popping all patches (or all patches
including <target patch>), then pushing the patches to sink, and then
(unless --nopush is also given) pushing back into place the
Do not push back on the stack the formerly-applied patches. Only
the patches to sink are pushed.
-t TARGET, --to TARGET
Specify a target patch to place the patches below, instead of
sinking them to the bottom of the stack.
Keep the local changes.
