I commented on this above already.

Two points:

1) If there are no changes, you only see the "Head revision" - so I do
not know if there are any new revisions in the repository.

2) It takes an awfully lot more CPU time and goes through files,
compared to 'svn up' - or 'svn st -v README'.

Right now, on my laptop, 'svn st -u' takes too long to perform on the
root of svn tree - too long for me to use it every few moments like I
do.
