The one piece of information that I often want is the SHA1 of the commit
that is currently being applied.  Currently I have to look through my
scrollback for the "stopping" message or poke around in .git/.

Having that in the output of "git status" would be really nice, but the
output format you've posted is a big improvement over what we have at
the moment for this case.

Actually, the same applies for cherry-pick and revert when they have
been given a range - showing the commit that is currently being applied
in "git status" would be nice there as well.
