RFC -- new 'svn status' symbol

From: Ben Collins-Sussman <sussman_at_collab.net>

So now we have wc directories possibly marked as "incomplete". When
'svn up' sees this marker, it assumes the the list of entries is
incomplete, and resorts to cvs-style reporting to the server: "assume
I have nothing to start with, and here's what I *do* have."

Anyway, it seems pretty important that 'svn status' print out some new
symbol for incomplete directories. I mean, if I start a large
checkout and interrupt it, 'svn status' currently says nothing about
the working copy. It should tell me that the wc is only half-baked.

Anyone have a new bikeshed^H^H^H^H^H^H symbol for 'svn st' to display
for an incomplete directory? Maybe a '#'?

... in fact, I'm guessing that a whole bunch of other subcommands
probably need to notice the 'incomplete' flag on directories and just
bail out. You probably don't want to commit from an incomplete dir,
or do a directory propset, or start scheduling adds/deletes, and so
