I suggest to show Index nevertheless because of consistency, Dariusz proposed to show the commit id of HEAD because the user can see that in fact index and HEAD have the same content (Dariusz, is this correct?)

Yes, this is correct, but now I'm convinced that the label should contains
"staged version" or "index version" instead of last commit author and sha-1.
This will also make code a little bit simpler ;)
