No problem.  It sounds like a reasonable feature request to me,
especially now that we are about to drop support for
color.status=always in configuration:

	commit 6be4595edb8e5b616c6e8b9fbc78b0f831fa2a87
	Author: Jeff King <peff@xxxxxxxx>
	Date:   Tue Oct 3 09:46:06 2017 -0400

	    color: make "always" the same as "auto" in config

Would you like to take a stab at adding it?  builtin/commit.c and
Documentation/git-{commit,status}.txt would be my best guesses at
where to start.
