Yes, in the background (he invokes __git_recursive_stat already in the

Yeah, I did not look closely at that. The commit message claims "When
entering a git working dir", but the implementation runs it on each
prompt invocation, which is awful. I think you'd want to check to use
rev-parse to see if you have changed into a new git repo, and only run
it once then.
