That's still a load of information I don't care about, for a command I
want to use all the time. I'd really love it if this could just be

  M foo.c

That's another argument in favour of doing this as "update --dry-run"
rather than as some switch to status. The functionality you want is
"what will happen if I run svn update"; doing this as a switch to modify
the behaviour of update makes much more sense to me than overloading
status. The "do one thing and do it well" principle?
