The actual reason was that I initially thought the change would be much
more controversial. I wanted to live with the option on for some time to
see how much I liked it, and allow others to do the same without forcing
the change.

If everybody agree that status it better without the comment, and that
the switch does not need a config option, then I'm fine with dropping
the config option.

We can also keep the config option, but document it as a transitional
option only ("the behavior changed in Git XXX, to keep the old behavior,
set this to YYY"). Then it could be status.oldStyle instead.
