I think, like pending merges, this should come after the tree status,
not before.

tree status
pending merges
loom status

It would be good to also indicate if the loom has pending changes, but
that can be built up later.

In init, please group the command decoration together (no 2 line VWS,
this is PEP-8 blessed).

+    """Show the status of the working tree, including the current

How about:
    """Show status for a loom."""

Your argument list to status is wrong - you only accept file_list, so
the others should not be there. (hmm, I'm guessing that the base
run_argv_aliases is passing all registered options in; if thats so, then
can I bother you to open a bug on bzr that we need to make this more
flexible to make command decoration more robust).

+        if file_list is None:
+            directory = '.'
+        else:
+            directory = file_list[0]
+        (loom, path) = bzrlib.branch.Branch.open_containing(directory)
+        branch.require_loom_branch(loom)
+        loom.lock_read()
+        try:
+            print 'Current thread: %s' % loom.nick
+        finally:
+            loom.unlock()

You call the path 'directory', but it may be a path (e.g. bzr status
README). Also, as you don't use path, doing:
loom, _ = bzrlib.branch.Branch.open_containing(path)
would make that more clear.

+    def run_argv_aliases(self, argv, alias_argv=None):

I suggest:
    """Decorate bzr's cmd_status to show status for looms as well."""

I would like to see a total of three tests for status:
- status on a non-loom does not error
- status on a loom with 1 thread
- status on a loom with 2 threads, showing the output change after
switching threads.
