Yes, but the question is what workflow it should assume. If you are
running mq for example (or pbranch, or doing local named branches),
using a simple "hg status" of the working copy will not do the right

(and, by the way, you can't assume mq is the favourite workflow out of
there: I for example use clones + local named branches instead)
