The wc diff editor (i.e. single revision svn diff -rREV) does
something similar, although it does the local check at each
close_directory. Doing the local check only once will affect the
order in which items are displayed, so you may end up with

$ svn st -u
       * foo/bar/baz/zig.c
       * foo/qax1.c
       * foo/qax2.c
       * foo/qax3.c
A foo/bar/baz/zag.c
A foo/qax4.c

rather than the current

$ svn st -u
       * foo/bar/baz/zig.c
A foo/bar/baz/zag.c
       * foo/qax1.c
       * foo/qax2.c
       * foo/qax3.c
A foo/qax4.c

I prefer the current behaviour, but other people may disagree!
