I think the basic notion of branches is the same in all VCSes, even in
older ones.  The implementation differs widely, but not the concept.

How is this different with hg or bzr or any other VCS?

If you are saying that they, too, should show the branch, I'm okay
with that.  I only brought this example to demonstrate how that part
of the mode line is just some ad-hoc string with no firm requirements.
