Now supporting branch names even when the checked out branch has no commits past master, woo.

You may already know about these:

export GIT_PS1_SHOWDIRTYSTATE=1
export GIT_PS1_SHOWSTASHSTATE=1
export GIT_PS1_SHOWUNTRACKEDFILES=1
PS1="$(__git_ps1)\n▸ "

Although the dirty state chars might not be as fancy as yours :p

The main reason I wrote my own is that __git_ps1 doesn't support non-branch locations, like master~2. If that's changed, I'm a happy man. :)
