You can't put this symbol in the first column. Even if the directory is
incomplete, it can still be modified.

Hey -- we never *do* show an M in the first column for directories, do
we? The only modifications we show is prop mods, in the second column.
Hm, hm. Conceptually, a directory can be modified and conflicted, and we
never show those symbols...

Anyway, I still think this flag sbould not go into the first column. Put
it in column 5:

    S Switched
    I Incomplete
    Z Zonked -- switched and incomplete
