I type 'svn st' a thousand bazillion times per day, while casually
debugging and QA'ing. This command has become as fundamental as
typing 'ls' in a directory. Unlike CVS's status command, our status
command is *short* and *consise*, and instantly tells me what's
modified, what has props, what's in conflict, etc.

Essentially, I run 'svn st' for the same reason I run 'cvs up' when I
just want to see a bunch of 'M' characters. But the only reason
people use 'cvs up' for this reason is because the 'cvs status' output
is so awful; it's really a horrible reason to run an update. :)
I'm hoping that 'svn st' becomes the new reflexive habit for everybody.

Thus I adamantly suggest keeping 'st'. I'm trying to promote a habit
here. :) :)
