Thanks for the fast review, much appreciated.

The short answer: There is more to be done, V2 is coming somewhen.
For the longer story, please see inline.

Yes.

One special thing is that it uses pathspec, `git restore -p .`
and $CWD is inside a decomposed directory.

There is more work to be done, as it seems.
Running `git status . ` in an ASCII based repo (ignore the debug prints)

  user@mac:/tmp/210125-precomp/A.dir>  git status .
  git.c/handle_builtin:699 cmd="status" len=6
  git.c:428 prefix="A.dir/" (6)
  git.c:434 prec_pfx="(null)" (4294967295)
  builtin/commit.c:1401 prefix="A.dir/" (6)
  On branch master
  Changes not staged for commit:
    (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
      (use "git restore <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
              modified:   O.file

-------------------------
But doing the same test within a decomosed directory:
  user@mac:/tmp/210125-decomp/Ä.dir> git status .
  git.c/handle_builtin:699 cmd="status" len=6
  git.c:428 prefix="Ä.dir/" (8)
  git.c:434 prec_pfx="Ä.dir/" (7)
  builtin/commit.c:1401 prefix="Ä.dir/" (7)
  On branch master
  nothing to commit, working tree clean
---------
But using ".." as the pathspec works:

  user@mac:/tmp/210125-decomp/Ä.dir> git status ..
  git.c/handle_builtin:699 cmd="status" len=6
  git.c:428 prefix="Ä.dir/" (8)
  git.c:434 prec_pfx="Ä.dir/" (7)
  builtin/commit.c:1401 prefix="Ä.dir/" (7)
  On branch master
  Changes not staged for commit:
    (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
      (use "git restore <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
              modified:   "../A\314\210.dir/\303\226.file"

  no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")
--------------

So in that sense, it seems as if `git restore` is special because
the patch helps.

More patches are needed asseen above.

And the rest of the suggestions makes all sense.
