Translating your question in non-GUI terms, you want to see the
difference between text changes and propoerty-only changes in 'svn
update', 'svn switch', 'svh log' etc. Something where svn uses 'U' for
Updated, but then 'P' for property-only update.

I think this is a valid feature request, certainly now with 1.5 we get a
lot of mergeinfo only changes, which would be easier to identify this
way. I doubt this is doable in a backwards compatible manner though.

Not that I have time to look any further into it.
