To me the message's value is the pointer to -uno that not many people
know about. And I don't want it to be too verbose as there'll be false
positives (cold cache, busy disks, low memory..), 2-3 lines should be
max. So indirections are not a concern. You want to speed up, you need
to pay some time. Anyway how do you put it to suggest -uno in
git-status with all the implications?
