Those revisions numbers being displayed are cached in the entries
file. They're inserted whenever you do an update. When you update
your tree, at a *minimum* every single revision's working-rev is
bumped to HEAD. Files which get patched also have their 'last changed
rev' bumped.

The -u switch isn't fetching 'last changed rev' information; it's
simply fetching a list of paths that the server wants to patch, and
then putting '*' next to each. If you left off the -u switch, your
'status -v' output would look identical, except for a lack of

But you raise an interesting point: I suppose 'status -u' *could* be
printing the changed rev in the status line... sort of like "peering
into the future". It might be useful.
