So I developed some of my tools because I was unable to utilize my brain and working memory to work essentially at all with a multi-clone environment. If one can handle a multi-clone environment then parts of my tools are not needed.

FWIW, and this may be useful anyway, I use the prompt stuff shipped with git https://github.com/git/git/blob/master/contrib/completion/git-prompt.sh

so that I know what branch I'm on and if the working directory is dirty etc...

I too can't remember anything...
