Sorry. It's my bad. I must have confused this with `git grep`'s --color option.

I have a perl script that shells out to `git -c color.status=always
status`, and I wrongly documented that the perl script's
`--color=(always|never|auto)` is "similar to git-status' option".

I verified this down to git-2.1.0, git-1.7.0 and git-1.4.0 confirmed
that `git status` do not support --color option then, and mostly
likely not in the versions between.
