'svn update --depth'

Karl and I have discussed a couple of times this week the weirdness of
having --depth be interpreted one way (as a limitation on the scope of an
operation) by all but one of our subcommands, and as another way (a way to
set a new sticky depth) for 'svn update'. We agreed together that our users
would probably be better served by having 'svn update' accept an explicit
and unique option, --new-depth, to serve this purpose.

This change is a simple one, and I don't recall many folks getting involved
in previous discussions about this particular corner of our UI, so I'm
planning to just make the change.

Respond here if you object and have better ideas. :-)
