Workaround for git status on old git #1543

This sort of thing has been discussed before:

Basically, some systems I'm working on have a version of git too old to support the --short format, so I added in the old status comparison removed in this commit. The systems I'm working on are running git and, so I gated the old-style status checking to <1.6.4. I couldn't find documentation anywhere of when the --short format was first supported, so that version comparison can and should be changed if someone knows better. Also, I'm not a shell scripting maven, so it's possible my code is horribly unconventional or wrong, and I'd appreciate feedback on that. Thanks.

#1654 was chosen as the workaround for this issue, I believe.
