It would be sad not to fix the existing problem of vc-mode failing
to notify the user about potentially detrimental states.

We are already using similar color-coding technique in the mode-lines of
compilation, grep, etc. with such faces as compilation-mode-line-fail,
compilation-mode-line-run, compilation-mode-line-exit.

It would be natural to extend the same faces to VC mode-lines as well.

Would you agree to install a patch after addressing the Mark's concern
about face inheritance?
