Sure, we are free to change porcelain output. But that doesn't mean
we shouldn't have a good reason to do so, no? And I'm not sure yet
that it's worth risking to break scripts and user expectations.

And Marc's comment also implies that the status command might not
be heavily used (surely I never use it), so maybe we are just
wasting our time here trying to improve it. And if real users show
interest in shortening the hashes, I won't object that change.
