Useful in CfM, but not in commit I think. You are almost guaranteed to
have mixed revs after a commit, so showing whether the WC is mixed
before the commit could be misleading. And needing to update before
commit is related to whether the repository contains new revisions
which need to be merged, so info about mixed revs won't help there
