If we do not care about the existing users (and in this case,
because PROMPT_COMMAND mode is in no released version, we could
declare there is no existing user), another and simpler approach is
to just drop " (" and ")" altogether and have the user give these as
part of the pre/post strings.
Or we could go the other way and drop "pre/post" strings, making
them part of the printf_format string. Perhaps that might be a
better interface in the longer term. Then people can use the same
"<pre>%s<post>" format string and do either of these:
without __git_ps1 having a special "prompt command" mode, no?
I have a feeling that I am missing something major, though...

Every time I looked at this line, I wondered why '*' state is
"bad". Does a user go into any "bad" state by having a dirty
working tree? Same for untracked ($u) and detached. These are all
perfectly normal part of a workflow, so while choice of red may be
fine to attract attention, calling it "bad" sounds misguided.
