Just for the record, it doesn't feel cleaner to me, although it may be
simpler to implement. It means we have two completely separate
mechanisms for tracking the state of mixed working directories. I'm not
even 100% convinced that the new method is entirely correct, though I
can't think of any screw cases which mess it up. It was a whole lot
easier to see that the old method was correct.

So, -0 here, but I think there were enough +1s to overrule me.
