Hmm. Good point, but ... I wonder what prompted me to make this
change. Perhaps it was the output of `svn help st', which says

  The first five columns in the output are each one character wide:
    First column: Says if item was added, deleted, or otherwise changed
      ' ' no modifications
      'A' Added
      'C' Conflicted
      'D' Deleted
      'G' Merged
      'I' Ignored

That might be confusing; as a reader I'd wonder why the example used
that switch. Probably the best thing to do would be to punt by saying
something like `you might see other letters; see the reference entry
for `svn status' for a complete list'.

Documentation exists, but never seems to be complete.
