Assuming you have grep on your platform (which most Win32 users don't).
Assuming you know to run 'svn status -v' (which a newbie usually wouldn't).
People don't read documentation (aside from tutorials) until they run into a
problem.

Which explains why so many of the unintiated have asked for this trivial
feature.
