;; FIXME: Still can't detect `ignored', see below, and returns
;; `up-to-date' instead. Which is rarely a problem because
;; `vc-backend' returns nil for ignored files.
;; It also can't set `needs-update' or `needs-merge'. The rough
;; equivalent would be that upstream branch for current branch is in
;; fast-forward state i.e. current branch is direct ancestor of
;; corresponding upstream branch, and the file was modified
;; upstream. We'd need to check against the upstream tracking
;; branch for that (an extra process call or two).

;; Alternatively, the `ignored' state could be detected with 'git
;; ls-files -i -o --exclude-standard', but that's an extra process
;; call, and the `ignored' state is rarely needed.

;; If status is nil, there was an error calling git, likely because
