Firstly, I don't use Git but I'm glad we're getting a DVCS addin.
Hopefully this will make any future work on a Mercurial addin (which I
would use and help test) easier :)

I know that not everyone likes using Eclipse as a reference, but IMO
they do have a nice option for handling the "what branch am I in?" issue.

What Eclipse does is to add what they call "decorators" to the project
name (I think the decorators add text as well as overlays). The project
name is then in black text with the extra text (by default) being a
paler colour and showing showing:
 * the repo name (the short name that you picked when you created it)
 * the branch name
 * current revision (remote for SVN or local for Hg/Git)

I can't find any screenshots online at the moment and don't have any
projects to test with (using Eclipse is part of my day job).
