Re: svn status -u --xml

So we're producing malformed/incomplete output on stdout for 'status'
and 'info' when in --xml mode. When not in --xml mode, there's no
output at all on stdout (nothing to report on). In both cases, we
write an error message to stderr.

We should either:

1) Produce no output on stdout (nothing to report on).

2) Produce well-formed output on stdout.

...and continue to write the error message to stderr. I prefer option
#1; since we consider this an error condition (and produce and error
message), there's little point in sending any output to stdout.

Thoughts?
