I'm not sure people generally look that hard at the mode-line, but
rather tend to glance at it.  "*" stands out even at a glance, which is
good in some ways but bad in others...

I agree that the "-" vs. ":" is probably too subtle; arguably, "=" may
have the same problem.  In my mind, it stands out because it's a little
"weird" (whereas "-"/":" are both totally natural separators that one
might not realize have any meaning at all), but I think Stephen noted it
could be confused for "equals the revision XX".

Anyway, there seems to be a preferences for "*" amongst responders so
