Michael, don't worry - Mark's not asking to change any default behaviour. I
don't think he even wants this extra feature exposed in "svn"'s UI, only as an API.

Mark, in my opinion, I'm not convinced that this feature is justified by your
use case for it, but if you want to pursue it further you could send a more
formal proposal in a new thread and see what others think. You maybe ought to
pursue other directions, such as performing an update on only the list of files
that you want to update. If the API for doing this is too slow, it ought to be
speeded up.
