Infra only uses the status='current' attribute of podlings.xml.

That said, we use it once in a script that podlings need to use when
they enter (mlreq), and once in a script the podlings use when they
graduate (no UI name).  So podlings have an incentive to keep the
'status' attribute up-to-date both at creation and at graduation.
