It seems to me there are two ways mr could deal with this.

One way is to have per-command skip statements. Then:

git_wip =
	git branch -v -v
	git status -s
git_wip_skip = ! git wip

And so repositories without changes would be skipped entirely.

The other way is to have a way to configure it to use --quiet mode 
(or a similar mode) for specific commands. Perhaps the most general
way to do that is to expand the alias support to allow passing parameters.
