[Locking] svn up output

Trying to continue the client stuff on the locking branch, we come to svn
update. As specified, svn up will remove defunct (stolen or broken) locks
from the working copy. I belive that the removal of a lock is something
that should be of interest to the user, so I think it needs to be
indicated. The problem is that we don't have any unused columns in the
update output:
UU path
I don't want to use the third column. One possibility is to write
something on the next line like:
U path
   Lock remvoed.
   Lock removed.

Ofcourse this can also break compability, but maybe less so. I think it is
more probable that a script depends on the path being in the third column
and if it checks column one or to for the actual action it will find just
spaces on the extra line. I don't like this, since it consumes more lines
and doesn't really preserve compability. Anyone has any better ideas?
