We don't do it streamily today. See svn_cl__print_status_list. Yes,
this would prevent us from moving to a streamy output. But keep in
mind that these changes would be *entirely* in the cmdline client --
if the underlying svn_client_status() code switched to a streamy
interface, only the cmdline client would miss out.

As it turns out, the presence of the -u status option makes
streaminess almost impossible anyway, since we have to make a pass
over the working copy, and then amend that information with a separate
chunk of data from the server.
