-n may not be standard in any way, but it is hardly a surprise to
see it mean "do nothing".

I've used "cvs -q -n up" to have some clue about what files are
changed, before I actually update the working set. It also complains
about conflicts, so I am mentally prepared to doing manual resolving.
Maybe useless, but that's just what I do... Perhaps svn has better
commands for this.

Oh, cvs seems to have -l:

-l Local; run only in current working directory,
       rather than recurring through subdirectories.

I have never used it myself. How common is the usage of non-recursive
operations versus do-nothing?
