Re: update vs status, where should local mods be displayed?

Sander, I'm glad you agree with everything I said. :-)

But, let me summarize the proposed changes on the table:

1. 'svn status' is capable of showing local mods (M, A, D, R) only,
    and it's also capable of showing local mods plus everything else
    (for seeing mixed revisions in a directory.)

    To be decided: what behavior should be the "default", and which
    should require a switch?

    It sounds like Mo wants the first behavior to be the default. I
    personally like the second behavior to be the default, which is
    what we have now.

2. 'svn status' can show only the current directory, or it can
    display a long recursive list.

    To be decided: what behavior should be the "default", and which
    should require a switch?

    I personally would like to make nonrecursive the default, which is
    not the status quo. I haven't heard anyone defending the status
    quo yet. (?)

3. 'svn status' needs to show if each file in the head server
    revision has -actually- changed. This is a big coding task (#385).
