When dealing with big software products and modular development, you
need the module level information in order to keep overview:
- you want to keep track of module (i.e. subdirectory) status:
working, tested, released
- when looking at the whole project (where the module might be
included as externals), you would be interested in the status of all
modules

To my opinion, it is not enough to provide a general project status
using tags / branches.

One thing to support this better would be an option to show custom
attributes in Windows Explorer. Is this possible?
