You can't as of now. Harish was in the process of implementing this [0], 
but I left some comments and he hasn't re-rolled the patch since. So 
unless I find some time to tie it up, this will remain un-implemented. 

Of course, if you'd like to see that feature in git-gui, feel free to 
pick it up and brush up the changes :). The latest version can be found 
at [1]. But it does not have a proper commit message (apart from the 
other changes I suggested) since Harish did not format the patch 
correctly when sending.
