I appreciate your interest, Philip. I am not currently trying to solve a 
specific problem (unless you count ignorance on my own part). I was reading 
"Pro Git" and it occurred to me that Mr. Chacon only mentions the checkout 
and add commands with respect to smudge and clean. Based on my own 
observations, I have concluded status does too. I was curious as to which 
others did, and after Googling around and finding very little, I thought 
I'd ask.

Just trying to understand the internals better...
