This patch ended up quite long. It might be a little easier to review
if it were broken into refactoring steps (I have not looked at it too
closely yet, but it seems like the three paragraphs above could each be
their own commit).

A minor nit, but you might want to update this list from the one in the
documentation.

Hmm. So the new format is its own distinct output format. I could not
say "I would like to see short status, and by the way, show me the
sequencer state", as you can with "-b". Is it possible to do this (or
even desirable; getting the sequencer state should be way cheaper, so
conflating the two may not be what some callers want).

Not complaining, just wondering about the intended use cases.

Also, does there need to be a --porcelain version of this output? It
seems like we can have multiple words (e.g., in a merge, with conflicted
entries). If there is no arbitrary data, we do not have to worry about
delimiters and quoting.  But I wonder if we would ever want to expand
the information to include arbitrary strings, at which point we would
want NUL delimiters; should we start with that now?

Please avoid C99 comments (there are others in the patch, too).

It is clear from this code that some tokens can happen together, and
some are mutually exclusive. Should the documentation talk about that,
or do we want to literally keep it as a list of tags?
