I like this -l idea as well. A status command that does not touch the network
seems useful but not so useful as to deserver its own subcommand. The -l
flag is not currently being used although it is mentioned in the client README.

  -l --local-dir Local; run only in current working directory.

Thing is, the src code currently uses 'n' for that option {"nonrecursive", 'n', 0}.
What is also strange about that is the fact that the README status that the
'n' option is meant to be a shortcut for the --dry-run long option (like CVS).

Whatever option we decide on, one thing to note is that we may need an option
to turn the "use the network" option back on. Me thinks some folks will set
`svn status --local` in ~/.svnrc but still want some way to override that on
the command line in case they do want to find out about pending updates.

cheers
