Anchor/target semantics with --nonrecursive

Hey everyone,

I have been thinking about implementing the --nonrecursive option for updates
and commits, but before I do, I wanted to check what people thought were the
correct semantics in light of the anchor/target situation.

consider a greek tree:

kevin@pilchie:~/projects/svn-test/greek-local$ svn up --nonrecursive
kevin@pilchie:~/projects/svn-test/greek-local$ svn up A --nonrecursive

or the same for svn ci.

My thoughts would be that the first case would update:
properties on .
any files within .

whereas the second case would only update properties on A (i.e. not the
files within A).

What do people think of this colour of the bikeshed?
