Well that works quite fast ofcourse - but that brings me back to the
same problem - I only see the new revision, not the revision that my
wc is currently at. That is assuming ofcourse nothing changed under
the current working directory.

Well that is exactly what I do, in the end. And the only thing running
'svn up' is lacking right now, for me, is that it would give some sort
of a clue that the revision number got bumped, even though there were
no changes to the directory you ran 'svn up' in.
