Isn't this a significant change to our existing output? Anyone who has
a script to look for Conflicted entries, for example, will now see the
changelist headers as conflicting.

I thought we'd discussed adding a switch to show changelist membership
for status?

I'm not keen on the idea of traversing back to a 'working copy root',
though I know we use this concept in one or two places. Is there
a compelling reason not to follow the pattern that the rest of the
application uses (of operating only on the subtree below the selected
target).
