Aha! Yet another dimension to argue about!

Really, this debate centers on whether you think 'svn status' should
truly show you *everything* that would happen with an update, or
whether -what you have- is out of date.

Karl was saying earlier: the use case is finding out which of your
-existing- files is going to be patched; people want to know where to
expect merges or conflicts. Thus, you only want to know about things
you have -- not (A)dded items on the server.
