I thought that our response to parsing the long output of "git status"
was always "you are doing it wrong". The right way has always been to
run the plumbing tools yourself, followed eventually by the --porcelain
mode to "git status" being blessed as a convenient plumbing.

I will not say that people might not do it anyway, but at what point do
we say "you were warned"?
