There already is too much tangled up with debug.
I've been assuming it would be a new option.

Commit date alone doesn't solve my problem. I want an option that shows that
I've made some edits that aren't committed. I could put an exit+commit for a
dummy file into a script, but then I couldn't ever push anything without
trashing the master repo.
Maybe git can handle that case. If so, I need a lesson.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
