[issue1813] `status` doesn't include subrepository status

New submission from David Wolever <wolever at cs.toronto.edu>:
If changes are committed to a subrepository, then a commit in it's "super
repository" (parent repository?) will update the status of .hgsubstate. For
example, given the directory structure from
$ hg st # There are no outstanding changes in the parent repo
$ cd nested # We're going to make a change in the nested repo
$ echo "changed" >> foo
$ hg ci -m "Committing changes to 'foo' in nested repo."
$ cd .. # go back to the parent repo
$ hg st # status still shows no changes
$ hg ci # But a commit *will* show changes:
HG: Enter commit message. Lines beginning with 'HG:' are removed.
HG: Leave message empty to abort commit.
HG: user: David Wolever <david at wolever.net>
HG: branch 'default'
HG: subrepo nested
HG: changed .hgsubstate
If this was an intentional omission (ie, because "status" is defined as "showing
the status of *files* within the repository", and subrepos aren't "files"), then it
would be nice to have an alternate command which would show "everything that will
be committed on the next 'hg commit'".
