See the git status of a directory tree

If you have a bunch of repos in a directory and can't remember which have uncommited/unpushed cruft use this alias. Works great when coming back from leave and not remembering what you were working on. ​Drop this function and alias into ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc and then use gstatus on the commandline.
