Re: [Issue 2672] New - --show-log flag for "svn update"

From: C. Michael Pilato <cmpilato_at_collab.net>

-1 from me. The functionality can be gained using a wrapper script
(which we could certainly keep in our own contrib/ area), and the
maintenance cost of a first-class feature just wouldn't see payoff.

Resolve/WONTFIX?
