How to show relative path in hg status

By default, hg status shows modified files with path from the root of the working directory. Most of the time, I would like it show the paths relative to my current directory.

There is no --relative option and due to the few people who need this feature, Mercurial developers have said that such a flag will not be added.

However, applying an empty regular expression or pattern to the status command gets the job done:

$ hg status re:
$ hg status ""

Tried with: Mercurial 3.4 and Ubuntu 15.10
