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.
