Yeah, after reading the justification in the quoted commit, I agree
that it is status that is at fault in the above; "new file: README"
is part of "Changes not staged for commit" in this case (it is told
to the index, but the user never said it is "for commit" yet, which
is the whole point of "-N"), so instead of adding a new section, I
agree that it should be classified as "new file" not "modified"
there.
