git-status documentation: mention subdirectory behaviour
Consistently with all other diff oriented commands, we have given paths relative to the work tree root in git-status output for a long time. This documents the recent behaviour change, as people's eyes (and worse yet, scripts, although scripts should not parse "git status" output) may depend on the old behaviour. In the longer run, giving a --full-name option to git-diff Porcelain similar to what ls-files has, and change the default for git-diff Porcelain to show relative paths may be a good thing to do, in order to hide the oddballness of this git-status behaviour, but that would have a rather large impact to established expectation by existing users.
