Sorry, I should have made this in the patch.

With or without my suggestion below,

I'd respect the same statusHint indeed. It's the same message, so I
think the same category of users will want to disable it. The name
"statusHint" may not be the ideal one, but if you see the messages in
"git checkout" as an excerpt of "git status", it actually makes sense.

As a nice side effect, it also makes the code/patch simpler (no need to
add the "advice" argument).
