Oh c'mon, Brane. You want to look down a list of 20 items, and
*manually* notice exactly which ones have CR's greater than the
working rev? That's absurd. There's no way I want to think that

The whole point of the asterisk is to quickly scan down the column and
just instantly *know* what the next update will do, without doing
calculations. In particular, you can instantly predict conflicts by
looking for "M *" on the same line.
