Thanks for the correction. Is it the recommendation of the subversion
developers, then, that in order to avoid wasted work, one should
frequently run not only 'svn update' but _also_ 'svn status -u'?

I for one think it would be nice if 'svn update' followed immediately
by 'svn status' could give me the same information, as that's quite a
bit faster on a high-latency link like svn+ssh.
